Default converting an old miss budweiser

I have a miss Budweiser that was a 1/12 scale nitro powered.i haven't ran the boat for around 14 years because I actually ran the boat till the motor failed.i was wondering if anyone can tell me if I can still get parts for this boat so I can try to rebuild it.i know the motor is done but I recently put batteries in the boat and radio and I believe the electronics are shot to as the servos twitch constantly and don't respond well to the radio.thank you for any help.

To help you we will need to know the brand of the boat, ABS or fiberglass hull, and engine size.

That boat wasn't a good runner when new and would be overpowered by the modern electric drives. Your best bet would be to put in on a shelf and display it if it's still in good shape.

I would keep it nitro, buy a new boat already set up for electric.

I'd swap it over to a flex cable setup and if you'd like to keep it a bolt-in, a Nova Rossi .12 would really wake it up! Really, in this case, a little smaller is better. Upgrade the radio system as the stock JR radio is awful.

Hello, I am restoring one that I bought a few years ago, I am in Spain and it is very rare to find one of those here. When I picked it up it was completely oxidized by sea water, and full of dry fuel ..... I decided to repair the whole hull and put on another engine and other electrical equipment.
Thanks to this forum and all the publications about this model, I have managed to gather information to start this project.
Thank you all.

If making this nitro, i'd go very small.. like .12 or something.
