Default new hull??

my hull is totally done. its beyond fixing. i was thinking of just buying the nitro hammer hull. i have the same engine and pipe as the nitro hammer so it will easily work out. i will also have the radio. and im guessing if i just buy the hull i could more easily convert it to a surface drive? am i correct? Hobbico Hatch White Nitro Hammer >> is that the hull for the nitro hammer? thats closest thing i can see of the parts list. thanks

I think it's still a lot of money for one dollar worth of ABS....

Considering the mold costs, the sheer numbers that can be made from one mold, add a bit for shipping, throw in 100% profit and it still should not cost more than $10

For a nitro boat, an epoxy resin hull is preferable to ABS, much more stable and durable.
