Hi All
Saving an old model boat is saving the soul of model boating!!!
Building a boat from an old plan is second.
I have done the second one, working on the first.
Third is finding old plans and saving these to digital PDF to save them from being lost to time.
Who has the plans of an original plan of an Aerokits Seahawk, Starfish Sea Queen????

Hi Andrew
I  abought a Sea Commander from a club member(it's from the newer company) only used a few times.
Removed the small brushless motor and installed a D3548/4 1100kv mainly because I add one and the original motor was rear mount.
Install a dog drive shaft and a 2 blade 40mm prop.
Added a 60Amp ESC and 3S 5800mah Lipo battery.
Very quick cabin cruiser!!!
The spray rails on this one do not go to the bow and so bow wave is large at low speed, over 1/3 throttle it picks up the bow and is no problem after that.
Yours is looking great!!
Car body spray putty will help with the smaller dents.

Good luck with your boat.
