Default Is this a Dumas deep vee ?

I am hoping someone can be able to identify this deep vee hull.
It looks a lot like a Dumas deep vee 10 but it is too long. It is the size of the deep vee 20 but does not look anything like the pictures I've seen.


It is 25" long and 9" wide.
It looks to be a kit boat.
See pictures.


Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you.

That's definitely a Dumas but it's not a Deep Vee. It looks like a "Skee Vee 20" , a now discontinued kit. Here is the Dumas page on a smaller version for you to compare your boat to:

Thank you Hydro Junkie. I have that Skee Vee 10 kit. It does look like it but the sides of this one are rounded and taper in, so I was not sure.
I looked at several posts and websites about Dumas. They produced a lot of great boats over the years. Wish some of them were still available.

I searched here and a couple other forums for a Skee Vee 20 (Since it is the same length as the Deep Vee 20) but no results. A lot of guys went electric in the Skee Vee 10.
I am going to go with a nitro engine. The Deep Vee 20 will take a .21 engine. I have an OS max 21RX that lines up with the shaft and just barely fits it that small engine compartment. It is rated at 2.1 Hp. I am not sure if thats going to be a bit too much...

One way to find out. If it's too much, you can experiment with props or drop down to a .18 as well

Yea, but I was hoping to find out more about this hull and info on its set up before I found out the other way. "Some people learn from 'other peoples' mistakes and the rest of us are the 'other people'."
