Yup, that's an oldie! It appears to be a vintage Prather outrigger.

NOT THE ATLAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Dumas boats were designed for much less power than that and, if the boat was built from the kit without any changes, it won't handle the torque the 90 can put out. When I say that, I'm assuming you are talking the 43" scale boat and not the 36" sport 40

It's actually the sport. But i figured the three running great and engine would be way too much for the atlas. Thanks for the help junky!!

Putting more than a modern 45 in the sport 40 Atlas will tear that boat up. Unless it was built with good quality plywood, rather than the mahogany doorskin Dumas uses, the mahogany framing has a good chance of failing and that big .90 will end up on the bottom of the pond. I'd save the engine and running gear for a new rigger that is built to handle the power that engine can put out

Already started building the prather piranha back to it's former glory. Gonna be interesting. Just gotta figure how i should run the water lines on this o.s. 90. Having the double water jacket makes me worry the single water pick up isn't enough.
