As of yet nothing is nailed down in that we have to do a proof build of the planes and then get the final cost of the laser cuts of the kit. The M.A.C.K. running hardware is already done, but the carvings for the deck hardware have to be finished , cast up and plated along with some stamping which we have to get pricing for. I would have to say that this kit should be some were in the $350.00 range.

By the way the model will be 35 inches in length with a beam of 12 1/2 inches. The 18 Sea Maid was the next size down from what Sterling Models modeled which was the Sea Maid 20. Believe it or not when you look at the two boats the only real way you can tell them apart other than measuring them is by the deck step pads. The 20 had two per side centered in each cockpit, the 18 had one step pad centered between the two cockpits.

Oh yea! The 18 Sea Maid was faster than the 20 with the Racing Fireball 160 with triple carbs and duel exhaust. This was the same motor that was used in the Century Thunderbolt.
