Boats are a different animal then any other rc.
They require maintenance and a constant realization of what needs looked over.
Please be aware that any of the china boats are ok but will have issues out of the box.
If you are looking for a cruiser or something slower they are hard to find.
Are you mechanically inclined??
Willing to read and spend hours learning about boats in general?
If you would like we can PM and I can help you to the best of my knowledge.
Also head over the offshoreelectrics.com and read the forums there as well.
There is allot of knowledge there too.
Keep me posted on what you are looking at.
have a good day

Awesome thanks for the site info. I just signed up and you're right, allot of info already on the princess.

I just came across AquaCraft Rescue 17 and that has caught my attention. Not sure how well it will do in salt water (no waves).

Also a kyosho Majesty 800.

read what you can about those 2...
Salt water is ok just make sure you rinse it off when you are done with fresh clean water.
And make sure the drive line gets greased.
