    Dumas SK Daddle 36

    Years ago a good friend of mine had a full size drag boat that looked allot like the SK Daddle. While at an antique show about a year ago, I found this 36" Dumas SK Daddle and was able to buy it for $30. Now I finally have a little time off and have decided to start the restoration on this one. The boat originally came with an old FOX dual plug .61, since I did not want to use the vintage engine, I decided to go with the ASP .46. Not too sure how it's going to turn out or even run but I kind of wanted to see how it would go. Here are some pics before.

    RE: Dumas SK Daddle 36

    I've been doing allot of priming and sanding on this one! The Lower hull looks good and is already fiber-glassed. In retrospect I should have used polyester resin and a light fiberglass sheet on the upper portion of the boat but decided to just use primer, I think it came out okay. If the wood starts to crack I can always redo it.

    I had no plans on this one but everything seems to be there and the assembly seems to be going well! Here's a look at the aft radio compartment and new radio box I just made today.

    RE: Dumas SK Daddle 36

    Let me give you a little advice. That rudder is going to cause you problems and should be changed. I would recommend going with a Speedmaster rudder assembly as the blade can kick back if you hit something while that Dumas will rip the transom out of the boat. Don't ask me how I know that

    RE: Dumas SK Daddle 36

    That brings back memories. I had the small version with a .049 in it, no money for a radio.That was what about 40-45 years ago. Times have changed. That boat and a lot of hydro's shure got me in the hobby though. Good luck, I hope it is a screamer.

    RE: Dumas SK Daddle 36

    Hydro Junkie, thanks for the advise. I have another rudder the boat came with it's about half the size of the one in the picture, should I try that one? I've been doing RC for awhile but this is my first RC boat.

    RE: Dumas SK Daddle 36

    My sister's ex had one of them, looked really good. They got divorced before he finished it and she sold it on him just for spite so I never got to see it run[X(]
    Just got to thinking, an Octura Strutter and flex shaft would be a good choise as well

    RE: Dumas SK Daddle 36

    If it's the Dumas style, I would say no. The problem with the Dumas rudders is that if you hit something, they don't give. My first boat, a Dumas hydroplane, hit some rocks and was wrecked because of the Dumas rudder assembly. That is why I recommended the Speedmaster and Octura hardware, if you hit something in the water they won't destroy the boat

    RE: Dumas SK Daddle 36

    Well I decided to paint the boat today. I got tired of sanding and figured the boat should not be perfect, so here goes nothing!

    RE: Dumas SK Daddle 36

    Um kind of embarassing... Orchard Supply Red.. I restored my old 1965 Ford 20 years ago and used OSH paint on the interior (Orchard Supply is a California Based Hardware store). It has still held up all of these years.. I kind of like the red and white. The interior is shot with Rustoleum stone textured paint which I used to cover up all of the imperfections in the engine and reciever bay. Once everything sets up, I'll shoot a final coat of polyurethane clear coat to fuel and water proof everything. Thanks for asking!

    I'm not to worried about speed, I just wanted to restore this one and maby take it out to the lake with my full size.

    Nothing wrong with using what you have as long as it's compatible with the clear

    Well, started the break-in of the ASP .46. The engine ran great, lots of power, can't wait to get this one to the lake. I'll run it again tomorrow.

    Congratulations for the restoration, keep following your work.
    I wonder how was the performance with asp 46m, and details such as the propeller.
    Could post some picture of the bottom of the boat?

    RE: Dumas SK Daddle 36

    Thanks for all of the great posts! As far as the ASP .46 marine, performance wise the boat pulls hard. Right now, I'm breaking in the engine and don't have the radio installed so I have to run the throttle by hand, it's really amaizing how much that little engine pulls the boat. Yesterday I used a big blue tub to break the engine in with and I kept having to fill the tub back up, the engine churned up that much water. I need a better way to run the engine and I think I have it, It involves a small child and a wheel barrel, okay just the wheel barrel. I have included a picture of the boats hull, it's not pretty and I'm currently running stock Dumas hardware , (even the cheap plastic prop) untill I can get an Octura 440 prop and rudder hardware. It's a fun project and even better condsidering I did not think I could get this one running. What's nice about this and my other RC stuff, it keeps me from getting into too much trouble.

    So, think in relation to the propeller, an X445 will best for this engine.

    I looked for some pictures on google, see if it helps ( http://www.google.com.br/search?hl=p...DsGG6QHGjYWwBA)
