Default Boat recommendations

Can anyone recommend a cheap self righting boat? I will prob not use enough to justify spending over 200. Just looking for something to take to the lake.

My cousin had this at the lake last week. It was ok in between jet skiing.....but not great - looking at what is posted above I would say that looks like a much better boat for the money

good radio and looks like a cool boat, battery lasted a while...but

not self righting that I saw, not all that well water proofed, basic battery, brushed motor with really basic water cooling, no cooling for the esc, rudder on one side of the back of the boat so it turned differently from left to right.

I would really spend more money and get a better boat if you want self righting.

How large? We have a small ft012 that is real fast and is fairly cheap to purchase. Those proboats above look nice too.
