Thanks Martin
Looks like it could be a real nice looking boat, it currently has about 3 Coates of house paint brushed on with a 10inch brush, all electrics are there be it a mechanical speed controller. (all up $130.00 off Trade Me.NZ), was going to use as a winter project but after seeing those pic's Winter is tooooo far away.

Thanks again.
