Dumas ABS Hot Shot Tunnel Hull

All, I have an unused dumas hot shot abs boat that has been in my garage for about 10 years. I am fixing to move and do not see that I will ever use this boat as I tend towards wood scale myself. It has a gas tank and hardware with it but no engine or radio...just a bare bones floater. I got it from another guy and I think he had painted it and put decals on it, but I am sure it could be refinished.

If one of yall wants it I am willing to part with it for just the cost of shipping and packing materials. I can post pics if there is interest or PM me.

Thanks

These weren't a bad boat in its time but like a lot of Jerry Dunlap designs they will porpoise until they get up enough speed to where there is enough air flowing in the tunnel. I stilll see a lot of these around. The fix for that problem was to add 1/4" ply to the sponsons. It was a mold issue at Dumas, not Jerry's fault so he says.

jeff12345,

Give me a few days to get to it boxed and an estimate on the shipping...moving is a busy time so be patient. But the boat is yours.

Thanks

Hot little boat

I have been out the racing world for about 15 years and a lot of things have passed me by, but I am getting back into it again and I loved my Hot Shot ABS. I changed from a fiberglass Lap Cat to it when it came out and had it up to 50 mph before I got an offer to sell it that I could not refuse. All that with a stock K&B 3.5 and no 1/4" ply on the front. I wish I had seen this post first, I would have been all over that offer.
