Default Anyone Have an Enforcer "Stingray" Thunderboat?

Ijust got into boats and have two 30" deep V's. One electric and one nitro. Ireally dislike the nitro as it is messy and tempermental and therefore run the electric most of the time. Icurrently have it clocked at 43.1mph but now want to get into a larger faster boat. I have always like the looks of the old Thunderboat class and want to go with a gasser. I have vase experience with 1/5 scale Bajas (currently running OBR 27.2cc reed port, BZM Micro 28.5cc reed port, & OBR full mod 29.5cc long rod engines) so a gasser Thunderboat would be perfect. I do no not have the time to build my own so I am looking for an RTR or almost RTR.

For the money the Enforcer "Stingray" looks to be a good buy but Ihave no experience with Enforcer boats. Anyone running a Stingray that can give me a little insight about the company?

Thanks,
MadDog

Should you realy get the bug and want to race in NAMBA or IMBA
the enforcer hull doesn't meet the specs.

If I get the racing bug I will probably just use the Revolt 30 I have which does make class and maybe get another large scale later on down the road.  Do you know which builders of Thunder Boats does meet NAMBA or IMBA specs?

But again, anyone have an Enforcer Stingray?

IMO
If you've got the time, Blazer and Zipp kits have some of the fastest hulls/come in kits to keep the cost down
I think the backlash is the fastest sport hydro out there right now
Insanes thunder boat is very fast/pricey
RC boat is a good looking thunder boat

How about Seaducer Boats?  It looks like they will make an almost RTR at a good price and since they say their Thunderboat set all kinds of records I am assuming it is race legal.

Anyone running a Seaducer Boat?

I'm not familiar with them, think they run the monos out in the gulf.
Couldn't get much info off their site. Thats a good looking hull.
If it looks good to you and the price is right, thats the one to get.
If you get a boat thats execiting you'll run it for sure.
The clasic thunder boat hull i'm talking about is a minum 48, maxium 59 inches long.
