Dumas Chris-Craft Utility Boat Kit 24" Kit#1240 BUILT!

I built this boat several years ago. Now that I live in the middle of the desert I have no plans to ever finish it. I need to generate some bucks to pay for a few medical procedures so I'm selling off a few things. This is one of them. All the hard assembly work is done. It just needs some final sanding, fiberglass, paint and your R/C control system install. I'm including everything that was included with the kit like the stuffing box and all appearance hardware. Of course the plans and assembly manual are included as well. I'm even tossing in two 1 yard bags of FG cloth and a 550 size brushed motor. My listed price is less than that of the unbuilt kit. If you need any more info just let me know. I can shoot more pictures etc if you need.


Check my feedback here and on ebay. ebay seller ID is Badmeat. You can buy with confidence.

I just changed the shipping method from Parcel Post to Priority Mail. I dropped the price $5.00 to compensate.

I've been alerted that ebay shipping quotes are way out of line. I have no idea why it won't allow Fedex etc. If you are interested in the boat contact me with your zip code so I can give you a true shipping quote.

The boat is 24" long with a 9" beam.

I just found out there is a FedEx location relatively close to me so that is another shipping option. I still don't know why shipping costs on ebay show so high. I'll only charge actual cost.

Gary,

Final shipping weight as packed in double box is close to 10 pounds. The ONLY way it would ship USPS for $15.00 is to myself! USPS can range up to almost $60.00 to the east coast!!


I can't believe what a shipping cost nightmare this has become on ebay. I think I'm pretty much done with them. I found a FedEx location close to me and shipping is MUCH more affordable. If anyone is interested in the boat contact me with your zip code and I'll work out shipping costs for USPS and FedEx.

I have GOT to clear some space in my hobby room! I'm willing to drop the price on the boat to $150.00 plus actual shipping cost based on your zip code. That's far less than the kit price and the hard work is already done for you! FedEx seems the most reasonably priced way to ship. Forget USPS!

I would consider a trade for a House of Balsa A-7 Corsair or Midwest Strikemaster unbuilt kit plus cash.

I forgot to update the listing so it no longer shows as an off site sale on ebay. It's all straight now...
