I just finished building 4 hulls from my own design 2 for myself
and 2 for members of my club. I made these hulls to build fishing boats.
As you can see i used 4 planks for the entire boat, bending board
is easy to work with, it's very strong, you can shape it the
way you want and it's very light. All they need is fiberglass and they will be ready
to build.

FOR SALE
This is my rc yacht is 52" long was scratched built from a picture.
It has 2 robbe 540 motors and a 4 channel airtronics radio.
I never ran it, all it needs is a speed control.
The boat is finished exept you need to glue in the windows on the
inside that i made. The only reason that i am selling it is
because i have too many projects started.
I am asking $ 1600 .
I will only sell it locally because of its size, i sold something a couple
of months ago this size and the shipping was insane.
No shipping!

This is my tug, 51" long with a 14" beam.
The hull is from the invader, it runs off 12 volt battery
powered by 2 Robbe one thousand.
It was scratched built over 2 years the entire boat is planked with
cherry veneer. The rail cap was made out of one piece of 1/4"cherry.
It has 2 ram sound systems , fire monitor works off
the 12v battery and has lights for those night runs.
There is a 6v battery that powers the lights and the reciver
for my 6 channel Airtronics radio.
This tug is 10 years old and is in the water every Sunday.
I won best in show, and first place.

This Pushboat with the 2 barges speaks for itself !
They were scratched built and the ammount of details
on both of them are very impressive and creative.
