A 1950’s straight running River Cruiser model boat with original engine. Fully restored to it’s former glory. This streamlined model was raced at Southend Model Power Boat Club (S.M.P.B.C.) during the 1950's and 1960's.

During the years of racing this type of powered models, they were either straight running, or tethered. Tethered craft ran around a central anchor fixed in the centre of the lake, typically at high speed, until it's fuel was expended. Straight running craft were launched from one side of the lake and aimed, across the lake. One or more catchers would would be positioned at the far side of the lake and would receive the craft, and return it.
