I just got this 7ft fiberglass 1/2 boat from Checkmate. I'll custom paint it and hang it on the wall. I'll put a pair of 10" tall toy Mercury outboards on it!. Gonna be different!

That hull is 7 feet long?? Looks like an R/C hull in the pics, you could always throw a couple weedeater engines in it, and some heavy duty electronics and run it! So what's the story on the boat? Is it supposed to be a Convincor? Either way, that's pretty cool!

Ya, that is really cool. Can't wait to see how that turns out.

Like CheckmateFever said, "What is it"? Model wise, I can't tell. When I first looked at it I thought maybe it was some kind or prototype, but I don't see any steps in the hull so let's hope it is just some kind of weird side project.

Get to paintin, Wildman...

Edit to my first post, i just noticed that it is litterally just half a hull!! I thought when you said 1/2 a boat i thought it was just cuz it was small, now i see it is just a hull split down the middle!!

It is a scale model of a 30ft Baja Outlaw. Regardless it is an awesome wall hanger and the full boat is an awesome possible rc toy.

Baja sent the full boat model to the University of Michigan for wind tunnel testing, then later several boats went to dealers. Many of them went out the back door for employee's so who knows how many are out there.

The half model was created by Dean R. before he was at Checkmate to make some extra cash in between jobs I believe.
