Hi Phil
According to EBay its 43" x 17" although it doesn't look that wide in the photos.  This is a multi racing hull (it has a stepped area at the back for the radio box lid) and would probably be best for "C - 15cc glow" or "SI 26 - petrol" classes.  It will have been designed for direct, submerged drive with both the prop and the rudder underneath the hull.
You can find pics of similar boats on Robert Daniel's site
http://www.modelboatracing.co.uk/
All the bits for it are available from Dave Marles http://www.prestwich.ndirect.co.uk/ or Ian Folkson http://www.iansboats.co.uk/
The hull might have been a good price ... now you've just got to get the rest  ;)
Cheers
Danny

Like Danny says it's a multi hull but I happen to know that one of these has been stretched to give it a 50mm freeboard with a B class motor onboard to comply with BMPRS racing rules, bring it on Kurt......I will be measuring it  :-)) {-) {-) {-)
