Default Aquacraft Motley Crew vs Lucas Oil FE

Both look identical, except that the Lucas has a rudder pickup vs a bow pickup. Would the Crew be worth the extra $50? This would be my first electric boat.

Lucas oil.... Motley was released years ago. Lucas was just released last year, with many improvements.

What are the improvement, and why is the Crew still $50 more?

I've been told that the Lucas Oil hull was layed up a little thicker in some key areas and has a slightly stiffer motor mount, in addition to the water pickup differences that you alreaded noticed. The price difference is probably for the paint/liscensing on the Motley.
