Default Out of Stock

I am trying to get into RC Electric boating. I am thinking a few RTR's first to learn and get going then moving on into some kits.
Having tons of issues finding boats that are in stock on most websites. I prefer the 32in to 60in boats.

Is this the norm.

What are the boats you were looking at?
what type of hull do you prefer, Cat, "V", Hydro?
What is your budget?

Dan.

11 hours without a reply is not uncommon.  Its quite possible that nobody saw it overnight, or that those who did didn't know the answer, or thought that a bit of browsing the board might well have turned up a similar question complete with the answer.
Adding some more scope to Dan S's question, is your interest just fast boats, or is scale under consideration?

So in my original post I asked if it was the norm for most sites to be out of stock. Is this common? Can they not make them fast enough? Kind of annoying to actually find a boat you like and not one site have them available.

Joe,
we can't give you a definitive answer as we don't know which site you are referring to and what type of boat/hull you were looking at.
but yes, it does happen that some site may run out faster due to the demand.

Dan.
