    Aquired this boat some time ago I take it its some form of kit deck fitings have the look of a home made one 7.4 volt
    I have since found out in the late 1950s Richmond boats made models of there actual Cabin crusiers for there customers children 24 was made in all so in every thing a bit of history boat story comes out
