About this creation

This is how to build a Lego Motorized Mini Boat. This little boat is very simple, and this is my first model to have instructions. Some of the parts on the boat are rare, but Bricklink may help.
Here are all of the parts needed. Parts: 1x Lego Dump Bed 1x Lego Underwater Motor (with the rudder unmounted) 1x Large Flag/Panel 1x Gray Bar with Stop 1x 1x2 Brick with Side clip 1x 2x4 Plate 1x 2x2 Technic Plate with Pin Holes 1x 1x2 Grille Plate 1x 1x2 Brick with Technic Pin Holes.

Here is the motor mount. Attach the 1x2 brick with cross axle holes on the front mounting pin on the motor, (pushed all the way back) and then place the 2x2 plate with pin holes on the back pin mount. Once they are in place, attach the 2x4 plate on the 2x2 brick and the first 2 studs on the 2x2 plate. Then, place the 1x2 grille plate on the last 2 studs on the 2x2 plate with pin holes.

When the motor mount is finished, place the motor on the bow of the boat, right in the middle. Be sure that the front part of the motor is facing the rounded end of the hull.

Here is the boat's rudder. First, clip the gray bar with the stop on the 1x2 brick with the side clips. Make sure that the bar stops are underneath the clip. Then, place the rudder on the very bottom of the clip, with the rudder's bottom clip right on the bottom part of the bar and the top one near the middle. When it is finished, place it at the stern of the boat, right in the middle of the very back. The rudder is placed right into the flow of the propeller, so it has a great turning radius.

Quoting Bacon Tomato I don't recall ever seeing that Lego motor before.
I know, there are LOTS of people who don't know what the motors are. Here's a bit of history so you know: In 2004, Lego released a 4+ Juniors set which was a small police boat with a motor. The motor was yellow and had a 3-blade propeller and rudder. In the same year, they released another 4+ Juniors set which was a large pirate ship. They re-released the set so it came with a motor; but the motor could be bought as a separate accessory. In 2005, Lego City released a large motorized catamaran named "Speedboat." The set came with the same yellow motor. In 2006, Lego released a large motorized police boat named "Police Boat" This set was different, it came with the motor but the motor was very different. AS you see on this mini-boat, the motor is orange and has a high-thrust 2-blade propeller. The motor also had a venturi rudder, (Not mounted on this boat) and a year later in 2007 Lego City released a large motorized fire boat named "Fire Boat" The boat was pretty much the same as the 2006 Police Boat. If you check my page, all of my other boat MOCS have motors. Check them out! Here's the link to my page:http://www.moc-pages.com/home.php/131561
