Default Decision on what kind of r/c boat to buy?

I was looking on the bonzi web site, looking at a 64"Fountain RTR w/BZx4 modified G260PUM, RTR w/BZx2 modified Zenoah G260PUM, w/Single Bz1 Mod Inline Zenoa.
Was looking to see of people thoughts. My other pic was a 60" or 67" catamaran style aswell and seen radteks 92" custom boats and deciding weather to buy a RTR boat or buy the hull of radteks and buy everything I need to build it. which I would need help on.

If anybody could help me out I would really appreciate it. Just looking for your thoughts on a really cool big R/C boat to buy.

Have you had other large RC boats before? If so, I've had a few Rio 51's and they are a fun boat, real good bang for the buck. Also, have WHH Magnum 57's and they are fun, rougher water hull(fine on smooth water too)

While these are the biggest I've owned, I will say the 57 size maeks it hard to fit it and my Rio 51 in my suv, the 92" boat you mention might need a large pickup or trailer just to get it to the water.

Seriosly, that's a lot of boat. Hopefully you have a vehicle big enough to haul it around in.
Have you built a boat before? If not, it's not as easy as it looks, even harder if you don't have someone around to help you.
I can't say that I'm a fan of Bonzi' boats ut even if you were going to buy one anyway, you're going to have a handful and may be overwhelmed with it.
