Dumas Chris Craft - Posted: 6th Jan 2016
Hi gents

Thought you would like to see my latest Ebay acquisition. It very battered but I have lots of the bits! Its 31" long.
It is fitted with an escapement type steering device. The main motor is a 'Pitman A Panther' motor made by Pitman Developments, in USA, and there is a mechanical speed controller. It also has Eveready dry batteries of American manufacture

I believe this is an American kit, but because of the American equipment fitted may also have been built in America.

Any guesses to its age, and has anyone seen a picture of the complete boat to guide my rebuild?
The motor runs so I hope to retain that but fit modern controls.

Any ideas appreciated.

All the best
