This is a listing for a custom built 65" Long Remote Control - US Coast Guard Cape-Class Patrol Boat "CAPE GULL - Hull # 95304 - This great boat was hand built by an old time R/C boat modeler who has now unfortunately passed on. It comes to you still in very good condition as follows. The Boat Measures slightly more than 64½ inches in length, has a maximum beam of 15 inches and measures 24 inches from the base of the keel to the top of the radar mast. It has what looks to be a fiberglass hull and is gas powered with an electric motor "turbine" for servo / other electrical power. The gas motor has not been tested, but the pull string starter still works and the motor feels like it still has good compression.(Motor is AS IS, since we have not tested it) The boat has a single screw and single rudder configuration. There are still remote control servos installed in the boat, but we do not have the radio control for these. Therefore they will need to be replaced and new radio control parts provided.
The Cape-class patrol boats were 95-foot (29 m) steel hull patrol boats of the United States Coast Guard with aluminum superstructures. They were unnamed until 1964, when they acquired names of US capes of land. Originally designed for anti-submarine warfare (ASW), all 36 boats in this class were built at the United States Coast Guard Yard in Curtis Bay, Maryland Since the cutters were unarmed until about 1964.This boat was done up with the 40mm MK64 grenade launchers on the bow and the double. 50 cal machine gun on the stern as she would have appeared around 1987. The detail work on this mode is fantastic, with a handful of detail parts that have unfortunately come loose with age. These could be easily re-glued. Boat deck and hull show some small signs of dust and dirt from age, storage and use. This Boat displays beautifully on the padded wooden boat stand that was made for her. Stand shows some signs of age and use wear. It is missing the front wooden support piece, but this could be easily replaced. She is a big and solid model boat, that would make a superb addition to any collection. Perfect for display or running on the lake with a little additional work.
