Default Dumas PT Boat took from dumpster

I found this 33" Dumas PTBOAT in the dumpster!! Why it was thrown away I'll never know. The boat is in pristine condition but has no ELECTRICS in it.I think I'll try to get it in the water this spring,but I'll need your help.Can anyone give me a wiring diagram to make this boat operational? It does'nt have to go fast,I just want to get it wired to enjoy for the summer. I have NOIDEA what to get or how to wire it. Thanks DW Henson "DUBS"

Here are the pics Ipromised. I scratch built the 50 cals and the gun tub railings. To my error, it did have electrics in the hull but I don't know the type of batteries to use for this setup and where the alligator clips would be clipped to? There are 2 sets of alligator clips as you can see, but don't know what they would clip to???

Also on the starboard side, under the front gun tub, is a 5/8 " hole that I think might have been used for an exhaust port? but not sure?

Anyway, I hope you can help with this simple fix (but not for me) and what size prop should be put on the shaft.

Thanks

Dubs

I hope I uploaded the picture alright, first time trying to do it and may hve not done it right...
