Default $20 Recovery Boat

Got some stuff from a garage sale today. A 35" mono hull and electric outboard with a 3060kv motor fitted. The motor works as I tried it out with a aero speedie. I have a couple of 5800mah hardcase 2cell LiPo's from cars that could be used. I'll pick up a cheep water cooled speedie from HobbyCity. Should work out well as a recovery boat, cheep and easy to use.
I will have to seperate the deck from the hull as it is almost falling of now anyway, and then I'll clean it out and fit out the hull, then re join the two. Should be a good boat after it's finished.
Question, Anyone know what brand the outboard is? It looks like it has done very little work as there is no wear in the drive shaft or flex drive.

Cheers

Thanks, Now I can do a search.

Washed the hull and seperated the top, made up a radio box, speedie and battery mount plate, still have to make up the transom reinforcing plate.

Cheers

Hi All, have the gear all in and the deck joined. All setup now except for a water outlet(should be here this week) Cant use the water because of all the tourists down for the hol's. Total weight with batteries is 2.1 Kg Shauld be a good little boat.

Cheers
