American Made CR914 Kits

CR 914 kitAs some of you might know, Dave Ramos has purchased the molds and rights to the CR-914.  In doing so, he has now completed his first US production run and is shipping new boat kits.
 
Importantly, the new boats will be pretty sweet out of the box.  I was speaking with Dave last night as he drove to the Boston Boat Show.  He explained that you can almost take the hull out of the box and sail with it.  Remember how much filling and sanding was required with the hulls made in Japan?  Also, the hull scantlings are heavier so the boats won't be as prone to breaking.
 
Finally, the kits now come with the CT6 radio, a knock-off of the Spektrum 2.4 ghz radio systems that have worked so well for us.  These CT6s are programmable which the Spektrum 5s don't offer.  Dave preprograms them to give the trim servo a full range of swing and actually minimized the max throw of the steering servo (a good thing).
 
The kits will cost $495 plus shipping
