Not sure but does not look to bad, whats the price? In the last picture towards the front, the manufacturer mark is on the hull but I can't make it out. That boat would be cool with a zen. I' would maybe pay $250 max for it, thats just me.

Yup, everything hanging on or sticking out through the transom are Warehouse Hobbies pieces and that does include the exhaust system. The "weedie" motor is what kills the price otherwise it'd go for a lot more. I also have an idea that the radio system is vintage and not FCC compliant any more. That's not a big point but one you can use to drop the price a little more. Tell the seller you'd have to swap it out to make it legal.

Yes the radio is an 4 channel futaba attack. I told him all electronics have to be replaced.

The Futaba Attack is a bottom-of-the-line radio system that's on AM. With a gas powered boat you need at least an FM system to help avoid interference from the ignition so it's completely useless to you unless you like driving into things when it glitches, and it will.

Yea not into glitches. I did that once back in about 1990 or 91 . I had a flightcraft air boat running a k&b 61 with a 10x9 prop . Had it take off in big circles toward a couple guy's fishing in a canoe . Luckily ran out of gas about 20 yards away from them. I sure like the newer radios .

That is a dumas scarab kv38, its a clone of the miami vice boat. I just bought one. Mine is painted in the miami vice colors, has a new never run ops 15cc motor, servo controlled electric start, mixture control, and choke. scale wet exhaust system...too many bells and whistles to list. Got it for 300. Builder was very maticulas. They are awesome looking boats
