Default Need help identifying a hull

I just picked this up from a guy getting out of scale modeling. I have searched everywhere to determine its origins, but Google is not my friend right now. It is 30 1/2 inches long, an 8 inch beam and a depth of 3 1/2 inches at the transom. The top is in red metalflake gel coat and the bottom is in white gelcoat. It is a flat bottom bottom with a very slight vee on the centerline. It looks a lot like a ski boat or a flat bottom racing hull. Unfortunately, I cannot post pics yet. If you need a pic, contact me off line and I will be glad to provide some.

1) Who made it, and what type of hull is is classified as?
2) In light of current technology, would it be feasible to outfit it for electric drive, and what type of drive? I would be using it fro recreation only on a local pond, so it does not need to be competitive in any sense of the word.
3) Are there any publications or websites that could provide a tutorial. My R/C experience is limited and predates brushless motors and LiPo batteries.

Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to give me.
