Dumas Drag'nFly

Hello, I would like to know if this Boat can be made to be pushed by a
OffshoreElectrics outboard.
I built this boat about 25 years ago and never did anything with it, it's about 90% done. The plans said to use a .21 K&B inboard/outboard powerplant. I would like to know what it would take to get this old girl in the water with electric power.
Length-27"
Width-14"
weight-2 lbs 8oz.
thanks

It looks like it would be easy to set it up with an os lower leg and a UL1 3656 motor .You would also need the adapter . OSE has all the parts .That's the easy way . I would research and try a 3674 2000kv lep. as an inboard . Looks like it can be done . That's a very old hull design . I started in 1976 and the drag'n fly was an old design then . I remember one guy running the orignal dran'g fly with a .65 OPS . It just was not as fast and could not turn as well as the new riggers coming out then . At any rate I'de go for the inboard and it may make a great FE boat .
