Hi,
Just been going through my Grandads shed, sorting some gear out now he's in a care home and we found his old boat. We think it was made in the 1970's(?) or earlier by his Dad. We haven't got a clue what it is or anything, it looks like with a bit of effort it might be usable, just greasing propshaft etc and a change of radio gear and new ESC.
Any ideas what it is?
Thanks!

Cascamite is resin based, but yes, they probably did use animal glues.

What bad luck, though hopefully the NHS will get you back to some kind of working order in the future - take care

Pity someone cannot 3D print them, although getting them chromed would be an issue
