Help!
Proboat classic runabout review artilce wanted

I would like to get a scanned copy of a review article about the Proboat Classic Runabout in the August '05 issue of RC Driver magazine emailed to me. I need it quickly, none of the local hobby stores have any back issues, and ordering one takes weeks. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Leave me a private message and I will send my email address.

Thanks!
Ray

Ray - in the meantime, have you looked at these comments?

Jim, thanks for pointing me to this thread, it has all the info I wanted, more than the magazine review. Don't know why it didn't show up when I searched the site yesterday. Any way, I plan to order one Monday. Sure I will have some real questions when it arrives.
Thanks
Ray

Ray, The local guys around here are having a problem with the lacquer cracking and allowing water to seep in behind the planks. Water won't leak inside the hull because the inner hull is fiberglass, so you won't notice it right away. But over time, the planks will begin to lift and curl.
To avoid the problem, before the boat ever gets wet, strip the hull and fiberglass it with 1.5 oz cloth and finish it like any kit built mahogany runabout. Lots of work? Yes! But worth it in the long haul.
