but to happyer days when my grandad and dad quit the boats when i was young my grand father kept his first boat that he ever built from hand by a set off plans no kit job and he kept it in the shed i hadnt seen the boat since the day it got put away when i would say i was about 5ish and hadnt seen it since but yesterday after cleaning the shed out i came accross his box that he kept it in and decided to pull it out and take some thought id share them brings back alot memorys its still got a old 540 motor and a 2 channel reciver tried motor with a battery still turns over sweet as a nut and free hope u guys lik  :-)
