What did you want to do with it? Maybe an old dumas model? Any markings on the motor?

Might not be a good place to run it, might be able to run it on short grass, not something I would put a lot of time and money into. Engine might need airplane fuel.

It can be a fun boat if you get it running. You can run it on wet grass and snow (if you live where it does that) or scoot it across the water. You can do that drifting thing with it on water.

It can be a lot of fun, they recommended like a .35 motor but they work a lot better with .45-60 size motor. boat is kind of heavy. It will fly with a .60 and go across the grass. You might want to try nitro cleaner instead of wd40. It dissolves the fuel and gummed up oil better. But once you take it out of the nitro cleaner you need to oil it! you can pick an OS 40 or 45 off e-bay pretty reasonable if it doesn't work.

Boat does not look like it is in too bad of shape just needs some TLC and cleaning. go boating!
