Hi promod.

if you dont mind me asking - What did you trade for it?

This looks more to me like a salvage job than an assembly job. Please dont think that I am trying to sound harsh. It is just that I can see you spending so very much more time (and money) trying to make something from this than you could start from scratch.

Motor looks corroded - clutch and running hardware look like they were emersed in salt water. I would be skeptical that the motor would run - that might be your first task is to see if it will start.

How badly do you want to see this boat running - I think that is your first question.

that looks like a custom,one off part.good scale look,i used to have a duel exhaust setup like that on my old Dumas 38 scarab,my setup was water cooled.it made a cool gurgling sound.i really miss that old boat,it had the wwh modded home-lite 30cc motor.the hull was about 55 inches long.no speed demon ,but fun to run.

Hi,
I might be wrong, but this looks very much like some sort of Apache hull.
I know you guys all think this boat looks in a bad state of repair, but half the pleasure sometimes is restoring an old hull to something halfway decent.
Have a look at this hull I bought, and what I restored it to. The hatch looks very similar, and it has a quad exhaust, which is what makes me think, it could be an Apache...
