Default Air v Surface receivers

Will a Spektrum Surface receiver work with my DX8 transmitter?
I am an aircraft flier wishing to try my hand with a boat. I don't mind forking out for a new receiver but would rather not buy a new transmitter.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

No. Surface and Air use a slightly different form of DSM and are not compatible with each other.
The DX8(original) wont work with a Surface Rx but it should work with a Marine Rx.

Thanks Aerocal, I guess the best option is a dedicated system for the boat. It's only money
