I built it completely from scratch, no plans. Just took a little while to lay things out and I started cutting. Its a fairly simply hull.

OK, have made some headway, the deck is in but needs to be sealed, the console and aft hatch fit perfect, but the forward hatch is a little loose. I built the bracket, it only needs some epoxy. The hull needs a final coat of epoxy and a quick sanding then its off to paint. In the pictures the bracket doesn't look to good but it is OK in person, I built it so it is removable and adjustable in case it is too low or high, or too heavy.

Ok, it's almost buttoned up! Just need to paint the console and hatches. The outboard and bracket are mounted and can be removed with the spin of four screws..... One of these days i'll finish up the steering and electronics to get her on the water! here are a few pics.

It's going to look great when it's all painted up! Do you have instruments and throttle levers for the console?

Right now, no. but it is easy enough to make that stuff. I have a steering wheel I could use..... right now I'm deciding where the steering servo should/can go.

I finally buttoned everything up on the boat besides the deck hatches and console so I took her for a run. The boat ran great and was quick considering its size. The boat floats great and I think if I really wanted to I could add another ep1 without any problem. I took 2 5000mah 7.2v batteries and put them all the way aft on deck and the swim platform was still out of the water. Overall I'm very happy with the turnout. BTW I forgot my camera in the truck so sorry no pictures!
