Help needed identifing an old Dumas boat

I picked up this Dumas RC boat haul today at my favorite antique shop of all places for $18. I has the motor and everything still in it as well. I poked around on Dumas's website but could not find anything that looked remotely the same as this one so I figured I would post some pics up here and see if anyone recognizes it.

The haul is made of fiberglass and is 24" long.

Here is the motor, it is a Dumas 4.5 - 6v 4amp Max motor, Stick a big brushless in it right

And here is the rudder horn and mounting rails for something.

Mounting Rails was to hold a water tight radio box. That boat was built strong for its day and is heavy compared to modern glass huals. Im sure it was originaly designed for an inboard .21 size 2 stroke. Whats the bottom look like?

The bottom doesn't look too bad, it is a bit rough but I am thinking on repainting it anyway. There is a nice old Fox 25 Marine engine on Ebay, would that work well in this boat? It would certainly fit nicely with the rest of it age wise. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=110307910908

I think I figured out what the model is, here is a pic of a Mucho Macho on ebay
it is listed to have a length of 24" and a beam of 10" it is for .10-.19 size engines.
