Default True model boating needs to make a come back

Everything is rtr, electric, there's still a lot of companies making wood kits and the good nitro and gasoline power is still around but is loosing it's popularity.
I decided to get back to basics and am picking up some old school kits
Got a Dumas short stuff DV10 working on a cool little mini outboard
I also have a Dumas scorcer 40 race mono and a competition deep vee 21
Getting ready to get a 1/8 scale 1973 replica of the pay n pak from mlboatworks

ML Boatworks and RC Boat Comoany are good places for scale builds. Zipkits, Aeromarine, Enforcer, Insane, and Seducer are just some of the company’s that build monos deep fees, sport hydro tunnels. All are really good gets or builds .

We played with boats in the late 90s, aeromarine always had awesome hulls.

They still do but contacting them can be difficult. It's easier to find an Aeromarine dealer and let them go through the hassle.
