Default New to RC boats, Need help picking?

Hi guys..I'm new to the forum and looking for a boat for next season. Searching the internet there are TONS to choose from. I'm not new to RC and understand the workings ect. I've had Cars and helis before .I'm new to boats though. Here's what I'm looking for...It's got to be fast "of course" , stable and at least 31" long. It will be used in salt water, but will flush after each use. I would like a RTR , but could deal with ARTR. I don't want to have to upgrade the heck out of it. I found a TFL Pursuit I really liked. It has a intergraded drive system that's pretty cool. Here are a few I looked at. Can you tell me what your opinion is? My budget is between $400-$500." for now"

The aquacraft revolt is the one I would buy, The revolt will run the pursuit out of the box. Its faster than the impulse too. With a prop change the revolt will run in the 40's with stock electronics. But if you change the prop keep runtime to 1 and half minutes and let things cool down. The revolt does high 30's with the stock prop and a 4s 4200 grim racer lipo.

Take a look at the RTR Inception from Hobbyking, has everything done, just add batteries, Radio, and go. It's 36 in. and hauls butt. I know I have one, used 3-4 times and is like brand new, lost my lake, will ship in the original box. New one is $313.00 + shipping, if you like it let me know and we can work a deal. Run time is 6-8 min. with 2 5000mah 3S.

Thanks

I am not saying 1 and half minutes is all he will get, I am saying keep the runtime short to manage heat.
