Cool fun RC Sailboat for sail $650.00

This is an IOM sailboat for sale. Its exactly one meter long and with the rig on it over seven feet tall. This boat comes with no radio gear except the rudder servo. If someone need advice on what radio to use with the boat, let me know. You only need two channels to control the boat. The complete A rig for the boat is included that I built with Vector sails in June of 2011. The rig cost about four hundred fifty dollars and includes a ball race gooseneck, sailsetc. main and jib boom and the mast is a groovy 12.3MM section. I just rebuilt the rig and made it better with some of the rig tips that I have learned in the year or so that I have been back in model sailing. The boat will only need a two channel radio, receiver battery and an RMG winch to make the boat sailable. If the buyer needs a sail winch, an RMG 280D can be include with drum for one hundred twenty five dollars extra. I would be happy to assist whoever purchases the boat if they need advice on how to set the boat up. It is not a complicated boat and is a lot of fun to sail.
This is a great starter boat for anyone looking to get into racing or sailing RC sailboats. There are lots of clubs that sail IOMs, check on the AMYA website for club info.
I would be interested in a trade for an Infinity 54 and am ok with
Paying the difference in price.
Contact me if you want more info.
I would be happy to ship the boat to anyone in the US and of course buyer pays shipping. I have a tube for sending the mast in and can get a box for the boat, plus tube to store the rolled sails in.

It has a professional LPU paint job and I have spent a lot of time tweaking the boat and getting it right. It was not right when I got it as a bare hull, keel, and rudder which cost twice what I am asking before I built a rig for it and then put another mast on it later. Well this whole thing is a big learning process.

The boat is one meter long or just under fourty inches. Beam is approx five inches, never measured that. The pot has a special spot under the cockpit made for it and keeps the battery and reciever dry.
