Engel Gato 212
« on: August 03, 2012, 12:49:37 PM »

Hi Guys , i could just do with a bit of help / advice i bought this about 4 years ago it was 99% finnished its fitted with all good running gear, motors , speed controllers , futaba 6 channel  40mhz radio gear . pressure chamber , magnetic switches etc , i was told its finnished in 1941 pearl harbour paint colours ,

I am into fast electrics and dont think i will ever get round to using it also my local lakes are deep i would not risk loosing it , i may look at selling ,

is it best to break up and sell as separate parts ?? or what do you think its worth complete ???

thanks in advance

phil.

I don't think it's worth anything Phil....but I'll gladly take it off your hands for disposal if you stretch to the postage.  :embarrassed: %)

There is a valve in the screw lid you pump up pressure with bike pump once the battery is fitted,

 its fitted with ballast tanks front and rear with some sort of balance control , there is a magnetic on / off switch , it also looks like its fitted with some sort of depth control , when i got it everything worked as it should i will charge up and test again
its very well made all fits nice and neat with no damage or cracks / splits to hull , deck etc

I have been looking on ebay / forums over the past couple of years and never seen an engel gato up for sale (not sure if thats a good or bad   :-)
