Not to insult this site but yes, there are. Some specialize in certain powerplants, gas, nitro, electric, etc. or all. I can throw a whole lot of sites at you but it would be nice to know what type of information that you'd like to find out about.

Have you tried asking the questions in here? There's a few people on this site whose talents usually aren't shown unless you ask.

Without mentioning any, have you tried using a search engine to look for some?

Looking for electric, I have found one good site yesterday. Looking to buy an impulse 17 or minimono.

You might find the OSE site and this one a little over your head right now: http://www.rumrunnerracing.com/feforums/ as most of them consider the RTR boats below them. A lot of the RTR's are still in the toy category, not serious RC electric boats.
I'm not trying to sound demeaning at all believe it or not. Some of these guys have slow boats that do 70.

It's weird as a lot of RC boating forum sites are slow this time of the year. With us that live in the northern snowbelt climes, this is our busy season getting new ones ready for when the lakes thaw. I've got one new boat about 95% done already, brought one back to life after collecting dust for years then tweaking or upgrading others.
I've been doing this RC boating thing steady since `96 but did planes and both on-and off-road cars and trucks before that since the mid`70's.

Thumbs down OSE

I'm getting kind of sick of ose a lot of my post lately have been disappearing there. The was a guy there looking for a blackjack 55 or another type of gas cat, that wanted thread disappeared, not a good mod staff over there. I don't think I will log into there again.

You have to keep in mind that it's pretty much an electric boat site so they probably don't want members in there to talk about IC powered boats. There are sites that cater to mostly nitro, gas or other forms of RC boats so they like to keep them that way.
I got to know Steve somewhat from posting pix and videos on his site and went into the forum site when I was building a hull that I bought from him plus hardware and stuff for other boats.
I bought a Delta Force Vortex hydro with the intent of building it for IMPBA SAW and 2-lap records. I really need to get it wet as the class has no one has gone for it yet in the Sport 12 "A" hydroplane class.

Are you sure you don't mean Jim and Dom's RC Boat Clique?

I didn't want to go there Steve but I know what you mean. If your hull isn't an AC and you don't run a Zen then you're an outsider.
Lacor, there's kind of an unwritten rule on a lot of forum sites that you don't promote another one unless there is a link on one of them has information that help to answer a question. Jim's and Tom's (Int'l Waters) are both closed sites and can be a PITA to get into.
