I have always liked the Hunter and it is yet another model on my "to do" list.
By the way it's nice to see a work bench as tidy as mine ;) ;)

the first of the build  a stern thruster



some one said this prop thruster was not as powerful as the paddle thruster
so i figured it would work ot well in the rear

I like what you plan to do with the 'housework'!

Nice job on the new 'stern' also.

no longer avalible. well i cant find one it came with this boat

tugs stern is gone i could not get both sides even and it was bugging me
