Title: Boat ID Is it a Huntsman
Post by: Inverleith on October 17, 2013, 08:08:07 PM
New to this and have a vintage boat with Merco 0.61 glow engine.  Its 32 inches long and been told its a Huntsman but not sure with the 2 level deck and wings on the hull.  Anyone got any suggestions.

It certainly does have the look of a Ray Hunt design. Maybe a Bertram?

Thanks - beginning to think its a scratch build so will start restoring - first off I have to remove the sticky paint inside the hull thats been degraded by nitro and then I want to replace the caulking which is currently nylon cord and see if tile grout will work better.  Will post some pictures as I go.
