Identify this hydro 3.5 K&B

I need some help in identifying this hydro with 3.5 K&B outboard. Part of my Dad's stuff. Looks like it was red in color some time in its past.

Its not an Hydroplane but rather a tunnel type,probably from the 80's but not a Prather.

Another Dumas Hot Shot. Those things have been coming out of the woodwork a lot lately. I had one way back in 1979.
I wouldn't run it as-is as the skeg is missing from the lower unit. Yours appears to have been updated with the newer Gold carb.
I do know where there's one still new in the box with a matching early generation short-skegged K&B that I couldn't talk the owner out of.

Technically, according to the RC boat sanctioning bodies it is a hydroplane as it has more than one wetted surface (the sponsons) but we still prefer to call them outboard tunnel boats.
