Default Help identify my hydro

Hi, I just bought this boat and I don't know who made it. It has a fiberglass cowl but I
think the hull is made of wood.
This boat was made about 35-40 years ago and never used. It has a 3.5 K&B outboard that came with it.
The boat and motor were never used. I searched the web but could not find anything about this boat.
Your help will be appreciated. Thanks

That's not a hydro but, rather, a tunnel hull. The hull looks to be a Dumas Hot Shot but the cowl is something different. I'd bet Jerry Dunlap could give you a positive ID on it

Not really sure what hull that is. Fiberglass construction.

I think it is a Steve Muck Tunnel. I had one way back in the day. Traded it for a Pro Line 5-channel aircraft radio system at a RAMS Hobby Show held at the SeaTac Red Lion. We used to have some great Hobby Shows.

I don't know what it is, I was going to say Hot Shot but it's not. All I can say is I wish I had it. Nice tunnel!
