Very nice. Well kept boat. I have the same one, V1. Almost 10 years with it too, I guess.
I am upgrading the original esc, new servo and switching to a cnc prop. It's been a while since it's been in the water...
Have you thought of reinforcing the plastic lid? Been thinking about that. If those break they are hard to get now.

Hi Rufus ,
Thanks for you message.
Yes that's the V1 ! I bought it approx. 10y ago (!) and it is still running.
On my side I have upgraded the ESC (to a Seaking 120amp) right after purchasing it, replaced the stock propeller by a Prather 230 and I am running it on 4s. It still has the stock engine.
I have broken the back of the yellow canopy after a bad crash but did not find a new one so I had to cut it a bit (you can see the plastic lid sticking out on the rear views).
I might get the new one with double engines next season. We will see

PS: have you tried it on snow ? It works rather well too:
