Nobody that I know of, it might have been sitting in some hobby shops back room. The charger looks kind of vintage too.

Ted,

That is no doubt NOS stuff. MRP has been out of business for some time. Too bad, they made affordable boats that wern't too bad qualitywise, save for those micro-switch speed controls ( I went thru a ton of those before switching to ESC ) Are you planning on building or selling that boat?

Ted,

As far as I know, MRP has been taken over by Thunder Tiger, maybe they still make these boats under a different name.

Regards, Jan.

Jan,

Thunder Tiger does indeed produce that style hull. I believe it has different markings and colors though. For some reason I believe it is now the Phantom(?) cat. I still like the Bud Dry version better.


Best regards,
Pete

If Thunder Tiger is selling them under another name, it could be because MRP, Proboat and other companies pay to use the Bud logo on their kits. If I'm correct, that royalty money is donated to a cause that Anheiser-Busch supports.

The MRP boat I wanted to aquire was the Skater using twin outboards. Too bad TT didn't pick that one up too.
