Default Point me in the right brushless direction

First RC Boat but been into the hobby (land) for a bit.

Really want, and cannot seem to find a good quality 35" to 50" catamaran or V-hull. All are either sold out or just dont exist. I really want to build a very efficient, fast boat running on 6s only. Maybe a big Neu and 180amp esc.

Can you help me find one?

Ahh, are the large brushless boats a new thing? I just figured the more experienced boaters would know the "good stuff".

I asked the same question a while ago and someone sugguested to go here. http://www.offshoreelectrics.com/ A very good website indeed with loads of info and a web store to buy all the right gear for your application. Enjoy.

Thanks Bumpy!! But... I have already been through that site numerous times. They do not offer any of the large Electric powered boats and of the 35" or so models are all sold out. This is crazy, there should be some boats out.

Most of RTR brushless boats are around 32". I think in the near future, we'll see bigger boats with brushless unit. Imagine converting a gasoline one into brushless with a marine version of mamba monster...

head of the river on ebay has a lot of hulls ranging from 15" to 51"
I'd give you a link, but I'm not allowed to link to other sites. If you join the offshore electric forums, there's numerous members using HOTR hulls.

try googling head of the river rc specialist. it might come up with something.
