For Sale model race boat twin engine

This is a one-of-a-kind boat And an opportunity which does not come up very often I am only selling as I have far too many projects to finish And I have to face facts I'm never going to finish it myself This has Mini Arneson drives which work as they should Has 2x 5 hp brushless motors It has only ever been in the water once since I fitted the motors And it went about 100 yards before turned upside down And destroyed Both speed controllers Which cost me £250 It was my own fault and nothing to do with the boat This thing is incredibly heavy and you cannot believe what speed it reached I reckon it did 0 to 50 in about four seconds It jumps about 2 feet out the water from standstill So power is no issue I "First-aid the motors straight away Has been Sat on the shelf for a year now both motors still turn freely Has both drives connected still And has radio box fitted This boat Owes me about 800 quid So grab yourself a bargain £350 Does not come with trailer
