Pro Boat Coast Guard lifeboat brand new with extras

Hi,

You are looking at an unfinished project. I bought a brand new Proboat Coast Guard boat and decided I would like something different. I changed out all the electronics for starters. I never had much luck with Proboats cheapo electronics. The boat has a Traxxas EXV2- marine ESC, a Futaba R603FS receiver (2.4 Ghz) and a Futaba S3151 servo for steering. Once that was all installed I decided I wanted to add some lights and an operating radar. I was able to disassemble the tower and run wiring for strobes, a flashing blue light and a wire for a radar unit. Actually, the radar unit was going to be a sub-compact servo with the end stop removed. I got all that done and lost interest. The boat has set on the shelf ever since. So, I am offering it up for sale here. I figure with all that I have spent on the boat as well as all the components I purchased $425.00 is a pretty fair price. Shipping and insurance will be extra. If I have to purchase any packing material I would expect you to pay for that as well. (Actual cost though, I am not making a dime on that) The boat is RTR, you can operate it right now. It has never been in the water, like I said, it is a work in progress with the lights and the radar unit. All you will need is your 2.4 transmitter. The only caveat is the hold down magnets for the hatch. One of the wires got detached and I screwed up one of the magnets trying to resolder it into place. However, the other one is still ok and it may not even be a problem. Not a big deal but I don't want to not mention it. It also comes with the stand, all manuals that came with it.



If you have any questions feel free to ask. No, I don't know what shipping is going to be. Expect $40-50 or so. Maybe more or less I just don't know. I won't box it up until someone purchases it. I also have a link to a short video of the strobes operating.

Pretty cool when lit up.
