    Roy,
    I have onlt seen the boat once myself. It didn't look scratch built to me. Since that time 2 other (more "seasoned" club members have also looke dat it, and also don't believe it to be scratch built.
    Our next club meeting isn't until January 17th (December is our only "off month"). I will see if he will bring it to the meeting. If he does, I will tkae a closer look, and get some better pictures.
    Thanks for the interest, and sharing thoughts on it.
    Dave
    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.

    Roy,
    Yes, I believe that is the boat it is modeled after.
    Just cannot find who or when the kit was made.

    Lew,
    Thanks for that info.
    Cool information about the life-sized boat that this is a model of.

    A couple club members have now looked at the boat, and all of us agree that it doesn't look scratch built.

    My guess this is a model of a USCG 30' surf rescue boat ("SRB", 30600 Series, built 1980-1990, being retired), possibility scratch built due to some inaccuracies.

    Asking for a friend.
    He recently acquired several boats from a fellow club members estate.
    I have been able to ID most of them for him, but am coming up blank on this one.
    Does anybody recognize this boat? Kit manufacturer, kit part number, boat name?
    Or, was it an RTR boat? Same questions as above.
    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
