Default Help finding a scale boat

Hello everybody I'm looking for a scale boat to pull behind my rig. something you see in the midwest like a Lund or something like that this is the closest thing i could find but its pretty small and really cheap. something with an outboard setup would be cool any help would be great. even a nice sized jon boat would be cool. or if anybody has plans for a scale fishing boat or something like that would be cool also could always build one out of styrene. thanks for the help.

RC electric outboards are becoming scarce these days! I think the Graupner GTX650 is still available. http://www.funrcboats.com/ProductInf...oductid=GR2370

Some ideas...

theres a nicely re-done pro fisherman on rc groups....says make offer.
the profishermans weakness was hulls cracking and transom rotting.
all this was corrected on the boat forsale at rcgroups.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1626303

im in the process of building a 27 inch boat at the moment using the ep-1....ep-1 is the most scale outboard out there.

yeah i think i seen that one. I was think about looking for one cheaper then my friends but i went over to his house this afternoon to do a little SC racing with him after we were board he asked if i want to see the pro fisherman run. it seemed to be doing good not really that fast and didn't seem to do to good with the small wake his pond had. then he came in hot and slammed on the brakes and a bunch of water came over the rear so he called it a day. didn't notice tell today how low they sit in the rear.
