Hi y’all. My buddy Larry was sorting thru his hobby shop, er, ahh, I mean the second floor of his house and found this old boat. It was given to him some years ago by a friend in an rc aircraft club. All I know about it is that it’s roughly 15 inches long, meaured at the deck, the hull is very thin abs, and I think the deck is too, although if you hold it up to the light it looks almost translucent. Looks like it might have been molded in color also. Don’t know if the stuffing box is part of the kit, but it’s a straight tube for a 3mm shaft, and the shaft that was installed is brass. That’s all I have. I’m thinking maybe older Graupner, maybe Billings....?
The deck is in good shape, but the hull flange is starting to separate where it transitions ninety degrees. There’s also 2 small cracks vertically from that point. That can be fixed, but I’m hoping someone knows what this is so I can get an idea of what to make out of it, I’m thinking a cutter or fishing boat.
Thanks for the help!
