Default MRP Firecracker and Graupner Arrow

Thanks for letting me join.

I have three boats. First is a Graupner Arrow which I have empowered with the newer radio equipment. This boat flys on the water.she is too fast. Bow pops out of the water and bounces until you go a little faster. And she planes out. But it is too fast. I'm trying to get her to plane out a bit sooner. Can anyone point me to a place to look at adjustable trim pads. I also need to change the cooling for these newer motors. I see some of the new boats have a cooling jacket. Any companies out the that make cooling jackets for Traxxas marine motors? Or any ideas on making my own coolers? Also it's been painted with a paint called Forumula-U. Which I believe is a polyurethane. What can I use to add stripes or other details.

The second boat is an MRP Firecracker. Where can I find the instructions and the decals.

The third boat is I think called is Candy. It is powered by two inline motors.

Both of these boats are plastic but i don't know what kind. Any help?

Thanks for your help

The Candy was a boat made by Futaba, their only foray into RC boats that I know of.
MRP went out of business many years ago so finding decals is going to be tough.
ABS plastic.
