I have a fiberglass hull that is a replica of my fathers commercial fishing boat (pic below).
The hull is about 44 inches long stem to stern, and 13.5 inches wide across the stern.
I'd like to start with an electric motor and add RC controlled steering and speed controls including prop and rudder. I'm completely new to this and I would rather spend the money putting the right gear in side the boat than rip it all out later and start from scratch.
Can someone give me some pointers on where to start, and what brands/equipment I should be considering.
Also since this is a model of a commercial fishing boat, is there anywhere online that sells scaled parts and accessories like tackle blocks, mooring fittings, etc.
