Now I have removed the decals , don't use Goof off , to remove the glue , i used Motsenbocker's Lift Off , it did not harm the ABS hull at all

Any hobby store stocks it. And you can get it on line, kintecracing or Offshoreracing.

Had to cut more away than i was thinking but it makes for a nice sweep for the water lines and power cables , the was enough silicone hose in the boat to do this job , just waiting for my motor to come and the lakes to thaw

I am going to start with the stock prop in SS , and see how it runs and go from there, just trying to balance the prop now ,, SS is a tuff metal

Same as in Canada, snow, ice and boats ready to go...

Not enough snow anymore to run them in the snow.
