Default New boat build:)...

I want to know what is better to buy a RTR boat or to build a custom boat?

i just bought a 26cc hydro boat but now going to build a cat, this way i feel like you will learn so much more and know your boat rather than just buy one, been studying up on how to and what to do,

there really is no comparison between rtr and getting all the parts and assembling one your self i have found with rtr you end up replacing alot of parts to gain performance or because there quality so lets say you but a $900.00 and you add better hardware +$ 125.00 a better pipe $ 100.00 a real Zenoah or other $ 250.00 you get my point i pesonally would sugest somthing from here [link]http://www.whobbies.com/[/link]you can get a hull with all holes drilled and you put it together yourself or RTR there customer service is awsome so jmo buy a hull and go from there i think you will be more satisfied with the end result

Where are you going to be buying all of your parts for your cat?

Depends on what boat your looking to build, alot of the fun in this hobby is building something your proud of and watching it tear up the water. IMO
