(2 Blade X Type) Powered by NiCad (7.2v) 5Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through HobbyWing for two motors (5Amps) ESC - Comments: just finished the 1930 CC runabout, bought 18 years ago, bought this dumas model cause i thought the instructions would be similar, which they are not. wrong Numbers for parts, wrong instructions, or non for a piece. i guess they want you to buy there DVD for $20. also building the hull the wood split, and did all kinds of things. had to come up with my own way to cover the hull.

[Score: 8/10] 36"/4600g 4 C'S ? NOT finished Capable of 10mph and a runtime of 20mins Single Propellor (3 Blade 30mm) Direct Drive to a dumas 540? (3 Blade) Powered by NiCad (7.2v) 2Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through hobbywing (5Amps) ESC - Comments: It has been a pain to try to finish the sides. have tried all kinds for z-poxys and resins. just stopped the pain, by spraying with a can for clean gloss urethane. looks good not great but i'm sick for sanding and getting no better results then before. 10 years in the making dumas 1930 runabout kit. took 18 years to built, trying to finish the hull in zpoxy, didn't work, so going to something else, a real pain,,,

[Score: 5/10] 36" RETO Capable of 15mph and a runtime of 20mins Twin Propellors (2 Blade S Type 30mm) Direct Drive to a ??? (2 Blade S Type) Powered by NiCad (7.2v) 2Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through HOBBYYWING ESC - Comments: dumas commander wood is not the right type, having to change alot of things in the build, the instruction are not very clear at allllll. not like the other dumas boats. up to the hull finishing, have to bondo the hull cause of all the differences from one side to another, a pain and then have to fiberglass it, this is my first fiberglassing should be fun, if anything like my other boat, it is going to be a long process, takes the fun out of building the boat.
