Midwest Lobster Boat


This is one of two prototype Midwest 30" Lobster Boats built by me as part of the kits development. One was used for box art, ads and trade shows. This one was used to proof parts and engineering. It is finished with K&B epoxy inside and out and the decks with urethane. Power is an 05 electric water cooled motor driven by two 6 cell sub C nicad batteries connected in parallel. The throttle has two speeds forward and reverse. Running time is one hour. The boat also has a RAM diesel engine and air horn sound system. An automatic lighting system turns the running lights on with the motor when under way. When the motor is off the running lights go out and the cockpit light turns on. The lights are powered by two AA batteries. The radio, sound and lights each have their own power switches.
There is a towing rig that can replace the rear deck hatch. It releases a buoy to snag and recover other boats. The opposite end of the line can also be released. All of the above functions are controlled by an Aristo-Craft/Hitec 2 channel radio which is included in the sale. All accessories shown in the photos are included. No batteries are included.
Prefer local pickup in Chicago south suburbs. Will ship at buyers expense.

I cannot understand why this is no longer produced. This kit is very much sought after especially in the UK
We have a company over here that could produce this with modern laser cutting from CAD files.

I paid just shy of 200 for the original and no one considers that too much.

Thank you for your timeless contribution to model boat building.
I would recommend listing your boat on ebay with the global shipping program. It would cost you nothing at all as the buyer pays shipping and import duty. You only need to post it to the local GSP facility via ebay instructions and they do the rest.
Good luck with the sale
