    So far my collection resembles "The Island of Misfit Toys". I've picked up several boats that are old builds and have been neglected. I'm giving them the TLC they need, hoping to bring them back to their former glory. Once I get enough practice/ experience I intend to take on a full build.

    My buddy Larry took a Hobby Lobby home decor skiff and made a working rc boat using a 380 powered outboard. He had to go thru the skiff and seal it, the hid the rc components best he could, added a Barbie for a pilot, and that was it. You could do the sameโ€ฆ

    I've gotten awesome input on the Chris Craft Corvette, and the KNK Mini Jupiter.
    Does anybody have any thoughts on the Skiff?
    It seems to be a nice unit, presumably from a kit.
    It is about 30" long.

    Well, I think I made a good start today.
    It wasn't just dust, the boats must have been on display above an oven or something.
    There was the same kind of gunky oily film that you get on the exhaust hood over your range, covering every inch of these boats.
    Hours of elbow grease later, they are 90% better. They are now to the point that I can start working on them.
    Here are some before and after pics.

    Cash,
    It's under my command.
    However, it is going to need a little time in "Dry Dock".
    Any info or input you have on the Mini Jupiter is welcome and appreciated.
    From the layers of embedded dust, I'm guessing this hasn't been touched in decades.
    It seems to be pretty solid, though.

    River Rat,
    Thanks for the comment about waiting until Saturday.
    I made the 150 mi round trip this AM and grabbed them.
    He was a standup guy. He said he had 9 others call after me, all offering to pay more.
    He said he was a man of his word, and waited for me.
    Somebody might have swayed him by Saturday.
    They are home safe with me now.
