Just acquired a really nice set of molds to make a great replica of the STV River Rocket from Gary Murcott. This boat is 40"x 16.5" wide. Just laid up the first one last night. Pics of that posted below. Perfect size for inboard gas, or inboard (or) outboard FE/ nitro. I would like to make a seat tray for this so us FE guys can have a really sweet replica hull! Here are some pics. If you have interest, contact me soon, as I have 11 on the list already, and lots more interest is stirring, and i have not gone to Scream and Fly yet..I hear some of there have been waiting for this hull to be sold for a while. Only a couple were made from the molds, and it runs real nice. Here are some pics of the only one built, and the molds, and a video. The boat will be available with solid gel coat colors, or metal flake as I have about 40 colors available! PM me for more info, or ask here if you like! Mike Luszcz, www.mlboatworksrc.com

 

The molds. These pics were from when I first got them. I have stripped all the old paste wax, fully polished them again, and added Frecote NC-770 mold release:

Is it a shoe box or a clam shell design?

The hull like you see, with solid gel coat colors, full carbon layup is $350 plus shipping. Add metal flake to the top deck, add $25, add metal flake to the bottom hull, add another $25. Thanks, Mike

Guys, I'm currently at the IMPBA Gas Nats and got to see the STV that Mike donated to the raffle at the banquet tonight. The workmanship on the hull is excellent, sponson lines and edges are sharp and crisp, the engine rail stingers are stout and straight. The 'glass work is beautiful and the metallic finish top with white bottom looked awesome. Robbin Stebbins from right here in D12 won the boat so hopefully I'll get to see it rigged and running soon. Super nice work Mike!  :)
