About 10 years met a WWII submariner (Frank C) on line. He was close to "eternal patrol" and had several RC boats his family apparently didn't want. I was happy to buy his 32nd parallel fleet boat and take it off his hands. I HAVE NO INTEREST IN PARTING WITH IT but also realize I absolutely don't have the skill set to refit the monster and make it functional. Motors, hi compression air, and newer radio seem intact (when charged the 8 channel radio drives a variety of functions like rudder, bow planes, stern planes etc). I suspect however there are some significant electronic issues and likely multiple motorcycle cells are at end life. Cosmetically boat is killer as Electric Boat SS 316 "Barbel" (as nice as any Ive seen) thus worth doing. Apparently he transferred of the sub just prior to its final fatal patrol. Id like to honor the guy & sub mates and keep his baby functional & visible. Located in Denver metro area. Anyone willing to take project on for hire?
