Back to the Boating Lake Again - Mousetrap Boat

I built this mousetrap boat last August. I tried this with a much larger prop to see if I could go slow but longer distance and it really went so slow you could not tell if it was just drifting. Today I have a slightly smaller prop and it is easier to see that it does go better but still struggles with the slightest breeze. Finding the right sized prop is rather a matter of trial and error. There are previous videos featuring this boat and the links are below.
I cannot answer comments from people who have blocked replies, so if you don't get a reply to your question that may be the reason. It is probably worth reading my video description first because the answer may already be there. If you need a reply make sure your Google+ privacy settings allow replies from users that are not in your circles or add me to your circles first.

Generally my projects are for my grandchildren to enjoy. OK, I enjoy them too. If anybody else likes them, that is a bonus. I like to keep my work as simple and basic as possible so that it can be copied easily and improved by anybody who wants to try themselves. I recycle or repurpose items rather than buy new and when I do buy I like to keep it cheap.
