Any lobster boat fans theah ?

He wants $625.00 for a BIN, ends in a few minutes !

"This is my midwest boothbay lobsterboat, 30"x 10", with basically every option. A lot of swett, sandpaper, ca glue, paint, and internet searching spent on this beauty. Its gorgeous sitting still, and cruising on the water! I've only taken to the pool 3 times, but I had to list as used. The lrp 17t v10 motor is probably not even broken in! The strips of metal taped together are a removable ballast , since I only run on 1 battery, runs very nice on painted water line. "

Its gorgeous sitting still, and cruising on the water! I've only taken to the pool 3 times, but I had to list as used. The lrp 17t v10 motor is probably not even broken in! The performance was surprising! Very quick and jumps to plane when you throttle up. The 12 pics and description I give won't be enough to describe it, and I'm going to try and put together a 125 pic build log on a usb drive , included in sale. Everthing pictured is included. You'll only need a good charger, I use a onyx 245, because it charges all batteries, perfectly. The radio is a futaba ty4f, 72mhz fm , with 4 channel reciever, and basic s3003 servo. The esc is a brushed watercooled, lipo ready chinese import, with deans, no on/off just plug and go. Will also include hobby king lvd, that I never installed. The lrp motor can and brushes are water cooled by a trinity kit, very trick. All the water cooling is controlled by a dimensional engineering battleswitch, simply toggle down the right radio stick, and the self priming pump pulls water through all the electrics, and out the boat through a proboat outlet ! Works perfectly, and is very cool! Lol. So it doesn't run all the time, only when you stop to pull in the traps. I used a graupner universal instead of clunky dog bone, and keep shafts greased with grim racer lube.I didn't list any night shots, but it has ram nav lights in scratch built wells, and the int/ext cabins are lit as well. I did a lot of scratch built accessories, the engine box, live well, serving board, vhf radio/ antenna. Furuno radar, radar reflector, captains chair, fire extinguisher, trap rack, danforth anchor. Will also come with stove, cooler, life ring, seagulls, and of course doug as captain, and bob as mate. I named boat after my wife, but you could change, just stickers. I will also include model master paints. The aqua is 3 different shades I mixed. Boat is all brushed.as directed by midwest. Hull has 2 layers of fiberglass, motor/ battery bays are also glassed. The hull has 2 coats auto primer, and 2 coats white primer, before finish paint.feel free to ask any ?

Side windows are full tint, front have 1/4" of tint
All batteries are pretty new, you get a racers edge 2s 4000mah 75c lipo, 2- 4.8v nicads for pump and battle switch, and 2 -9v for nav lights. The hard case lipo is a tight fit, a lipo with front facing wires would fit better than top pigtail style.
The strips of metal taped together are a removable ballast , since I only run on 1 battery, runs very nice on painted water line. "
