    This is an ex eBay purchase that I have restored to the level shown here.
    It is a bit โ€œredโ€ at the moment, but I was hoping to find someone who can laser cut some white lettering to run down the hull sides, the name on the transom and possibly a racing number on the deck to make it look a bit more like an off-shore racer.

    Wow, that is almost RED! LOL
    Here in the USA we can use Callie Graphics to have anything you want for lettering
    or graphics of any kind. Just provide them with a digital file and the scale you want.
    I am sure there should be the same kind of thing in your area.

    They are very popular with the aircraft crowd but there are boaters that use them also.

    Pink undercoat gave a nice base for the hand brushed red spirit gloss paint.
    The inside of the hull was hand painted in a spirit based gloss paint to give a uniform appearance to the glass fibre matted and wood finishes.

    A platform was mounted to hold a pair of LiPo batteries side by side to provide ballast and to balance them in the hull.

    Internal hull preparation included fitting an alloy water cooled motor mount and aligning the motor before adding glass fibre matting to line the engine bay.
