Default outboard boat hull?

I'm looking for a outboard boat hull or kit. I have a Kyosho Dolphin outboard I want to use.
I think it is suitable for a 24" to 30" hull. I do not want to spend a lot on this project. (50 to $100 for kit or hull). I would prefer a stable hull that I do not have to worry about capsizing even if it would be a little slower. Any suggestions? Thanks; Don

Just my opinion, but you will spend more than $50 - $100 in headache pills due to the motor you have. Search RCU here for Dolphin and you will find out why. That belt system is a joke. The speed which the mfg'r stated is no where obtainable unless the boat is outside the vehicle driving to the pond.

Not sure what you mean by belt? It has a flex shaft. One end hooks to the motor( trinity p2k2) and the othe has the prop on it. Don

Don,

My bad. The name Dolphin brings back bad memories of a boat that was sold by that name that was a total junk. Searched the web for what you have. See what you have now. Might want to find a Dumas Hot Shot Sprint. Even the ABS would work as it's lighter than most other wood / glass boats. Watch ebay for low cost tunnel boats would be your best bet.
