Default I just got this Vintage RC boat!

A guy that my late father used to fly with gave me this RC boat with a K&B 60 on it.
i don't know if it was a kit or home built.
anyone ever seen one like this or know anything about it?

It looks like a badly cobbled together Dumas Big Swamp Buggy. Sorta. And the engine is a K&B Sportster. They came in .20, .28, .45, and .65 displacements. Bushing crankshaft.

That's the way my BSB is setup. Except I'm trashing mine. It's a heavy slug not worth fixing.

I did some work on the Swamp Buggy. Converted it to electric! I had some fun with it last week-pretty cool!!! Put a 900Kv 60-size Brushless motor on it with a 4s 3200 30c lipo mounted in the belly spinning a 12x6 prop and 50-amp ESC.
