Not currently shown in the Dumas Online Store. You will probably have much more difficulty getting one than building it, unless you already have one. Try: http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/fb.asp?m=9713018

You could always buy the 36 from Dumas, "No. 1207" and scale it up to 45. Then you could have two tugs, Oh Darn!

How true that is John...and you cant have too many tugs. I have rebuilt /completed several 24 SF projects and sold them on EBAY. I also have two 24" SF's and two 36's "keepers". I just dont have a 45" !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have also talked to Dumas in case there was one hidding on a back shelf in the store room...no luck.

I saw a hull for this on Ebay about three months ago. So, they are around on occasion. You do realize that this thing, once built is pretty heavy to tote around.

Yea...our club members have a couple of Darby's. It takes two guys to tote them to the water. I remember the one a couple- three months ago on EBAY. I wasnt in the market then...am now!
