The problem is the size as it is short. Putting a .12-.18 in it is a squeeze as everything will have to go in in the right order or you'll being spending hours getting it right. My little mono's are 24" and 26" so I've got a lot of room. Choose the wrong parts and you'll really have a mess.
You might want to check with Warehouse Hobbies to see if they're still making the Mini-Manta Ray.
Right now there's not a whole lot of small boats to pick from. One that I've got is now out of production, the Wild Thing .12 and my others are converted electric boats.

Too small. Just by seeing what they were using for power I knew that it wouldn't handle a small nitro engine. Look for one that can handle 8-12 cells and at 500 or larger can motor.
