    I bought this Huntsman 31 off a guy I used to work with.
    Another one in need of some TLC (bit of a theme here isn't there πŸ™„ ) Originally ic powered, then converted to brushed electric and once I get around to doing this one, it will be converted, like the others, to brushless lipo power.

    Will, what is going to happen to the Marlin.
    If you don't have a use for it I would like to buy it.
    Think about it, and let me know.
    Cheers Colin.

    Doug, thankfully it's not a car I've bought as no keys would most certainly be an issue.
    Thankfully, these three were simply sat in 3 nicely cut out holes in a board above the rudder.
    Removing those 3 and the Marlin motor has made the boat sooooooo much lighter.
    I have also drawn on the side of the superstructure roughly where I intend reshaping it, to change it from aft cabin, to aft cockpit, or Huntsman 31 Sport as they were known.

    Lots to do though still.

    Hope he chucked in the keys as well Will πŸ˜‰

    I have a hole in my boat!! 😯

    Thankfully, it's a hole I wanted to be there and is a Marlin sized hole.
    Damn they're a heavy lump of a motor.
    Weight distribution with a brushless motor and Lipo is going to be much better. Hopefully I won't need the three locking wheel nuts that the previous owner had put in the stern as ballast afterwards.
