I would choose a barrel back...

But from your selection, the Utility boat, or the 19' Racing boat.

I followed Patmat's advice and had a fairly successful 1st powerboat build.

Definitely the Triple Barrel-Back. It's the classiest looking of the bunch and very satisfying to build and run. This was ony my second attempt at model building and turned out very well.

I made the Triple Cockpit for my first RC boat build and I am happy with the way it turned out. There is nothing overly complicated with this kit - just take your time.

BTW, get PatMat's book as it is invaluable to the novice (and experienced) builder. http://www.mackproductsrc.com/mahogany_in_scale.htm

Hi to all
My prefered at Dumas store is the Chris Craft Triple cockpit barrel back.
She is wonderful to build, and on water she is very beautiful.

Tommyov- The Dumas model of the 1930’s, 24’ runabout has been built by my self and a few others here on the forum. You are right, she is a good looking boat and she runs great also.
