over all the boat is OK. the hull is abs plastic which is eaten/deteriorated by nitro fuel. some of the other parts are of low quality. i have had one for years...the major probs i have had with it were the hull being mangled by nitro fuel (you must clean it up immediately), the exhaust tube going bad and the u-joint...i've broken a couple of them, they are plastic and become brittle after a while. It's a fun boat once you get it going, but i would HIGHLY recommend puting the Octura x440 prop on it...it makes a world of difference.

Thanks guys for helping out. I know what to suspect now.
I'll see if I can locate a 440.
