Joe,

Read the directions, maybe a couple of times, and TAKEYOURTIME. There's no need to be/get in a hurry. If you get confused by the directions ask questions, someone has surly had the same problem and will help you.

You might also consider using the framing as templates and make new out of aircraft plywood. I have had problems using the mahogany ply frames on every Dumas I've built as they tend to be very fragile. Just a friendly note of caution

So you must be the guy who out bid me for that boat about a week ago? Nice job. I dont know if you saw the other one that was listed a little before that one. It was already started but had the hardware and railings. I was able to contact the seller and make a deal. Should be here 2moro. Like you this is one of my dream boats. Had a few in the past but sold them off. This ones a keeper. As stated before take your time and you'll have to be creative with some stuff. These guys here can surly provide lots of help. Good luck and see you at the lake![sm=thumbup.gif]

Hi Magnum,

Keep an eye on e-Bay....Every so often they come up for sale..If you do a Dumas Donzi search on e-Bay once a week you will find maybe 2-3 per year.

For anyone that is interested. There is another one on Ebay. As usual it comes up at the exact time my "play money" fund is near zero.

Hey Joe,

Also set it up in the RCUniverse classifieds...this will get it out there some...if you can't find a buyer here in the next week or two I suggest e-bay with a $400 starting price....someone will surely snatch it there and maybe put a few more $$ in your pocket but consider shipping it for a definite sale....

-Rich.
