the prinzess and the baja apear to be scale versions of the GLASTRON GT 150 nobody is building a sport outboard boat . all of the posabilities are for raceing boats. i like electric boats but i dont race. look at all of the interest in all the old glastron boats. on the web. here is the robbe motor and a fiew other their all electric except for the big dummy and the AMPS motor.

hahaha JACK DANIELS[] no MOONSHINE is the way to go the sad thing is that the owner of that amps motor will never run it just sit on a shelf[] you should still look at this one for sale { the first pic}[&:] looks close to an amps lower end {2 pic}

Does anyone have the build sheet / or knowledge for the AMPS Seebold hull? (the enclosed canopy type) I've had this hull since the 80's and would like to get her in the water. However, It appears that the back under side of the transom would have to be ground or cut back in order for the motor to be mounted. Is this right? HELP!

Ok, here's the pictures, It just looks like the motor needs to be attached with a spacer or the bottom of the boat needs to be trimmed, I purchased this boat from someone that mounted a K&B to it with an adjustable mounting plate. There is a hole in the transom where at one time a previous owner mounted or tried to mount the adj. trim bracket. Any suggestions guys?

Yes, you just need to cut a half circle shaped notch in the boat just enough to clear the engine. You will also need to find an AMPS trim unit for your engine, or devise a way to adjust it manually.

That is a later model boat, probably one of the last they made. I have not seen a lot of them. The ones I have seen all had plain cable drive K&B's on them.

It is funny how there is so few people around with much information on these boats and motors now. I know quite a bit about International Hobbies boats and AMPS outboards and outdrives mostly because I have collected quite a few along with many spare parts for them. 5-7 years ago the people I got a lot of my engines and parts from seemed to know enerything about these but I guess they have lost interest in this hobby. They are not here to answer questions and I have had no luck contacting any of them. Those guys are out there somewhere , I just don't know where. They are probably just busy with other things these days.
