So I bought this boat off of @BrapppnBuds and its going from electric to gas. Thanks to ups I had a little more body work to do than anticipated. So as of now I have reshaped the nose with a little more work to do and plan to sand the boat down and spray it black just to get away from the white gelcoat. Plans are a 30.5 with an esp top end and also removing the stuffing tube and setting back more as it won't line up with the gas engine. The boat will have trim tabs or K-planes if i can find them. May do a stinger or stay with a strut...still new to boats and from what I've read with stingers they have to be offset about 1/4" to the right to offset torque which is odd. So here's the boat and let my story begin

Here's my gizmo 30.5 engine. And it spins super fast and loud I have a 48" catamaran proboat and expect this thing to fly. Also have a beryllium sharpened and balanced prop, tuned pipe kit, added a water pump so this can sit still in the water and idle and still cool the engine. Just got mine running yesterday but I don't dare take her out the lakes still very cold right now and you will be fishing this out of the water. I dig boats!🤘🤣👍
🙄 not 1/5 bud
If it's 48" its a 1/5

There around 1600 on the low for a real quality single engine rtr built gas boat..I learned the hard way and bought a proboat zelos 48 from horizon but still only have maybe about 2100 in my boat. I'm looking at the twin setups to purchase next. In no way does this compare to the Raminator on pricing. I'll be in @ over 6500usd when mines done and that's just a just a kit and a rc max engine package.
