    When I first got hold of this sorry state the back had been cut out so the first job was to fill the gap with plasticard and then use fibre glass filler. The rubber strip that came with it was properly fitted around the hull and the hull and superstructure sprayed, a 65mm Kort nozzle with a 60mm prop and shaft was fitted and a 2 1/2 to 1 MFA 540 motor attached
