Proboat shockwave 26 bl is a good choice, about $230. Single battery, brushless, and 2.4 spektrum radio system. Your can swtich from lipos to stick packs with just a move of a switch, no programing card needed.

Yes, mono's are a good start ti get into the boating scene. Hydro's and cats are more difficult to set up the right way.
