Default My NEW boat has arrived

I have been wanting to get back into boats for a long time. I found Radtek online and just fell in love with the design and craftmanship with the hull and finally convinced myself to do it.

The hull arrived yesterday and here it is at my office (wouldnt deliver to home due to size) and me standing next to it. this thing is 92" long!!!!!

The plan is for two HUGE electric motors and hopefully be just shy of the 100mph mark when it is all said and done.

More pics to follow:

What do you plan to use? Possibly a Mamba xl2? Will car escs work in boats?

I would suggest Hifei 300 pro esc and some 50 size motors on 12s lipo for each motor.

I hate to bust your bubble, for what it's worth that haven't made the motors yet that will push that boat close to 100 MPH. Sorry.
