as for what to pull it with, i'm not sure, the boat is 10th scale, but nothing seems to be right...

clod?


crew cab highlift?


6th scale lightning

The boat is approximately 34 inches long and 10 1/2 inches at it's widest
supposedly 10th scale

Daymn...

Makes me want to get back working on my two 1/16 boats. One is the 'Carina' runabout from Graupner (kinda hard to find) and the other is the huge Dumas 'Dauntlass', a 48" kit-copy of the Rockefeller commuter-cruiser.

Both are good reasons to get myself a dropdeck/lowboy... I can put a boat-cradle on it for either, not to mention the sporty little Graupner 'Shark' sub (the dynamic diver kit, not the 'toy')

Also makes me want to adapt the hacked 'American Enterprise' I've got to 1/16, give her an aft-deck crane/winch for lifting/transporting the sub, and then be able to use the same cradle as the Dauntlass to transport her (both are about 48")
