Is that a K&B .45 or .67 with Prather exhaust trottle in there? There was many hulls available in the 80's!

I was hoping that somebody would have known what it is by now. This got to be a game for some of us older guys in here to blow the cobwebs off the cranium.
I'm no help either as when this came out I was into the 4-wheeled stuff. The ducts on the rear deck ought to be a dead give-away though as to who made it.

LOL , I did not think it would be that hard with all the knowledge here [8D] nothing has been modified to the hull . and i thought the ducts on the rear deck would have help figure this out . i have look at oldadvertisements from the 70's till the 90's at RC boat companies still around and one's the have bit the dust . and still no mach . this hull is not home made , so that rules that out ... this is now drive me crazy [:@]

your hull looks great . do you still have it . the bottom looks the same . but I do see how the top deck looks different . It is still hard to believe with all the great R/C boaters on here that still no one can recognize this hull [:'(]

The yellow one might be a Cal-Craft out of California as the only other "craft" boat that I can think of that it's close to is a Twincraft by John Finch.

Hi Porican
This is a very beautiful boat !
I do not know the name of the boat you install the wrong gear ratio ! ! ( I use the gear ratio of iron 18 - Plastic 32T = (1.77) )
These data I made ‚Äč‚Äčthis boat and my good friend to win this year's German FSR-O3.5 ! ! !

C.K.Y thanks for the info. that boat you built is amazing, i like it. For my boat I have no idea what I'm doing with this boat. This is my first boat and toying around with motors. I still have yet to drive the boat soon as i think I'm done i find something different i want to do and start all over. Today a friend of mine sold me a OS MAX 50SX-H nitro engine. So i will be mounting that in the boat. I have to ask for the motor mount with the gears? where can i find one of those??????

Hi Porican

I use translation error text may be
You use OS MAX 50SX-H nitro engine can be used to directly drive !
I only be able to provide some 80-90 years old installation photographs to give you a reference, but improved propeller...And the installation of shafting angle !!
The propeller may use Octura # X450 / 3 or X452 / 3.
Many teachers use the U.S. model to assemble this type of boat in this forum, you can ask them .......
