Lack of nothing better to do yesterday

I spent the major part of the day surfing craigs list for RC Boats. State by state city by city. I was amazed at how many boats were on it. Mostly over priced gas or nitro boats. I did find a few that weren't too badly priced. I think two wooden chris crafts, a cruiser and a barrelback but a lot of them were junk. I bought a sheetboat and hope to get it monday. TWT.

Dumas Thompson Trawler !

"This is an incomplete kit I picked up a couple of years ago with the intention of finishing it for my grandsons. They have no interest in RC so I am putting it up for sale. The prop and driveshaft are installed as well as the motor. The rudder and a speed control servo are installed. The well deck wood has been glued together but not installed and there is a residue on it that is peeling easily."


Item condition:Used

Time left:10h 25m 45s (Feb 03, 201319:33:20 PST)

Current bid: US $124.72 [ 14 bids ]

Saw one of these in a ''touristy giftshop''(as in junk) not too long ago, it was well under 50 bucks. They called it a ''battleship''.
