Dumas Fiberglass Hull Tug

OK, time to thin out the herd. This is a tug I bought from Diegoboy at Off Shore Electrics. I have had it in the water and it runs great. His description:

Monster tug is up for sale. She is a rare 45" fiberglass hull of the Dumas Shelley Foss. This hull isn't made anymore and this size was a special run. The Dumas Shelley Foss kits were plank on frame hulls and came in the 36" and the 24". This 45" monster is fiberglass! She is all decked out with LED's that can be switched on and off on the fly. Her 3.5" 4-blade prop with kort nozzle can push a boat with several men on board across the pond with ease. Her motor is a powerful 12V radiator fan motor. She has a functional Water cannon that shoots a stream of water over 25'. This cannon can also be pivoted via an extra channel. She is already ballasted perfectly, runs well, and even comes with the 12V battery that can power her for hours on the pond. The superstructure doors actually open and close. You will not be disappointed in this boat.

19 LEDs that can be remotely operated (on/off) on the fly. via TX
Superstructure doors that open/close.
Deck tool box that opens/closes.
Collapsable mast for transport & storage.
Radar setup for turning(micro servo needed)
Working Fire monitor (cannon) that shoots water over 25ft, and can be aimed via TX
Functional Tow winch that draws in/lets out/& quick release latch operated via TX.
3.5" 4-blade prop w/ kort nozzle

What is included:
The Tugboat with all the trimmings in operational condition (minus the items listed in the required items topic)
The Stand
The 12V battery
The ESC & motor

Required Items:
She will only require a 6V sla battery for the LED's (This battery can power the LED's for over 10 hours continuously)
The RX & TX of your choice.

If local to Springfield VA I am willing to discuss meeting you somewhere. The other option is I am going to the Toledo show in April and can arrange to drop it off along the route.

Reason I am selling: as part of a package deal I have another one, and decided to keep it instead of this one, as it needs some work to get it in good shape.

$550 as is.
