 Hi tom.
             if you compare this with what you have you may get a rough idea.

Depends greatly on condition. If a new unstarted hull, somewhere between 250-350. The OTW boat has a much more detaield hull, plus cast props, frames, etched deck etc. I recall a while back someone trying to sell an OTW kit for 150, and he had problems shifting it. Think it was minus a deck, but all the same, still a bargain

Hi Frank, thank you I know that the OTW one is the one to have. I have seen this 32nd p for sale currently at 11 but they won't post so it's a long drive. Will wait and see if it goes over a certain amount won't bother. Cheers Tom

Hi there Tomp. Where about's is this type 7c then? If it's down at my neck of the woods, I will go and have a look for you. Let me know.

I paid 300 about for a 32 parallel 7 from a clubmate, got hull deck, tower, fittings, all i did not get was the planes rudders etc, but have just purchased them form spooksgone on here.


Agreed the OTW is the better boat, but then at over 1500 they shoudl be!
But with some litholplate and time, my 32nd parallel could a will look good - i hope!

1500 with the dive module. The standard kit minus module is 775. Not really an even playing field comparing secondhand prices with a new hull. What was the price of a new 32nd parallel kit when purchased? I expect it was inline with if not more than what you would pay for an OTW hull today.
