there is a midwest mlb for sale on rcuniverse. PS I know of a proboat NIB but the box is damaged. Not sure if the hatches are damaged but they probably will be. I could PM you where it is. Its in a hobby shop. Unless you live nearby you will have to purchase it by cc over the phone. Thats how I bought mine from them. Both my hatches were broken but all I did was take pics of them and of my receipt and in about two weeks Horizon Hobbies (the manufacturer of these boats) sent me new ones for free. As you probably know these boats have been out of production for quite a while.

Where is the new in box one that you seen? I would like to contact that person or hobby shop and purchase that one. Please message me privately. Yes, I was told it is out of production from the guy at the lake I was talking to.

Catchthis,
Not my boat. It belongs to a close friend. I saw him today at our local hobby shop and he told me the he was selling off some of his collection to make room for some new airplanes he is building. He is a master hobbyist that builds most of his boats, planes and other RC toys from scratch. Like the rest of us, he saw this boat and decided he wanted one. I think he used twice. It has been sitting on a display shelf since that time.

I just helped him sell his CF Seawind -the one in the photo. Same story, he liked got it used a couple of times - then put it on display.

I won't be selling my MLB - one of my favorites!

Just a few things here guys. I'm not quite the richest person in the world, but I am getting into the RC boat hobby recently. my ballpark price is about $300.
I am also using my friend's paypal, so I could pay immediately if you are willing to sell yours.

I've already tried for that one... I just see that seller has reposted it. I thought he already sold it since I've sent a few messages to him and never got a reply back. I will try again.

Just and FYI - the Midwest version is not water cooled and is quite a bit different inside the hull. These are pretty good sized boats and need some form of cooling for the motors.
