I was considering this boat. It's not exactly FE but is listed for $300 and just needs batteries and radio. What do you guys think?

A very nice looking boat Chuck.
You know what I am thinking would go nice with that yellow paint don't you?
Pack it in the back of the Volvo and take it home before someone else does

Man, That is worth a lot more than $300 usd - Buy it!!!!:beerchug:

I have wanted to build one for at least 3 years now and gave up because they are very hard to find new or second hand.

Chuck buy it, that is a great scale boat. To build one takes one hell of a long time.

I have a deal to get the boat - just have to make arrangements to pick it up. He also sent me better pictures I will post one of them.

Chuck, if it is powered with Dumas motors, you may wish to look at Mack Marine as an option for power. For what you I perceive you are paying, that is a bargain.

Where is this boat? I'll ride with you if you want the company.

It has twin 900 motors but I don't know the make and what appears to be proboat esc's. It does need a bit of work and the wiring looks a mess but for the most part it's in good shape.

Danny, I would be glad if you came along as the boat is in Nag's Head NC and I am trying to get with the seller to meet somewhere but we lost power at 7 last night and just got it back. I will send him an email to set up a time and place preferably some time Sunday.

He said we can meet at the Border Station. I emailed him back to see if it's the one in Moyock or the one at the VA/NC border. He asked what time and I said 1PM. I can drive as my car doesn't have a ton of stuff in the back. :laugh:
