Default 65" Atlas Van Lines Fiberglass Kit

Is anyone familiar with a 65" AVL fiberglass kit from American R/C Helicopters?
It's from around the mid - late '70,s and is a one piece hull, with foam core wing and fins. Looks to be about 30+inches wide at the back of the sponsons.
A friend has this, and has offered it to me. His father acquired the kit in about '75-'77 or so and never built it.
How would this boat handle with Zenoah G300 or G320?


Sorry, no pics..........yet.

OK, I now have the kit in my possession, and it's actually 68" long, and 34" wide at the sponsons.

Appears this may be an Express Craft kit. Pretty sure it's the '77 Blue Blaster, but the "#1" decal says 1982. The '82 boat had a canard and an extended cockpit, so this is not that boat.

Been puttering with the AVL. Not much to do until I get all the running hardware, but got the fins and wing roughed in.
