Default Help me ID some old boats please.

Hi guys, a family member that knows I am into RC boats picked these up for me cheap and I would like to know if you can tell me what they are? The first one is a wood hull with thick heavy wood like I have seen in Dumas kits so I am guessing that it may be one? It is 28 1/4 long and 13 wide. It has an older K&B 3.5 engine with a Prather 215 prop. The next one is an abs plastic hull with a nice O.S max XM on it. It has a Octura 440 prop. The engine appears to be new! The hull measures 24 long by a little over 11 wide. I have looked through many old RC Boat modeler mags trying to spot these hulls and have had no luck so I wanted to ask you guys. I am excited, these are my first outboards ever, and I have been away from nitro for a long time running gas and electrics. Once I find out what I have I can start searching for set up info and get them in the water. Any set up tips would be great. Here are some pics. I also picked up an Aqua Craft hydro, its not a Vegas duece so what is it? Thanks guys. Mike M



This is the abs hull,




Here's the Aqua Craft,

The first one might be an old Prather Lap Cat II. The last one is easy, an AquaCraft Miss Vegas. Do a search and there's a huge thread on that boat in here.

The site wouldn't let me edit my last posting.
