CABOVER BEN HUR 11
OUTBOARD HYDROPLANE - 3 POINT CABOVER BEN HUR 11
A very fast "C" "D" Hydro of "Cab over" design that just about flies over the water and has excellent turning characteristics in both rough and smooth water. The safest type of hydro to run in rough water, it runs through the stuff that other drivers have to back off for. First place in "B" Hydro at an APBA Sanctioned Race and with a good "D" motor gets speeds of over 70 mph.

For the non racer who would like a big hydro that will take two people with safety for a fast, safe, soft ride, Ben Hur would be ideal. This hydro is as simple as possible to build, no extensive jig is needed. 36 pictures of construction and action, full step by step building instructions, full size rib drawings, scale drawings, some tips on setting up and a complete bill of materials. Meets all APBA specs for "C," "D" and "F" and will take any motor from 25 to 60 hp.

A boat kit is not available for this design, however see the Wetback 10, for a complete hydro Kit.

Ben Hur 11 is a Hal Kelly boat plan design.
