Default looking for model boat or plans

Hello all:
I have just aquired an Aquacraft .05 electric outboard boat motor.
I now need a craft to put it on.
The original boat was a "bass fisher" approx 28" long with an 8" beam
I'd like the same type of boat if possible but I'll consider all suggestions.
Thanks

I have checked out sites with plans for full size boats,but most want about $150.00 for plans that I'd have to modify then scale down etc.
Thanks for the suggesstion anyways!

Try Bass Pro Shops I have seen models of Bass Boats there.

Also, go to some of the manufacturers sites, Ranger, Triton, Allison, BassCat; they give all of the pertinent dimensions and just scale them down.

Thanks again but I've looked at this site and it's all full size boats.
I am amazed that with all the RC model boaters in the world,there are not many plans available.

But the plans Umi pointed out are at Model size... just print them out at the size you want.
