Default choosing a boat

I have had nitro cars now for a while now i want a boat. I have narrowed it down to 3 boats. Where i will run it there are lots of waves.
The 3 boats are the ThunderCat 31,SHOCKWAVE 36, and the nitro hammer. Witch do you guys think would be the best?

Totally agree with Ron. TC31 is a great boat for the money. Go to my web page and check out some pics of it. Real nice first boat.

does the tcat 31 have any problems out of the box like the sw36 and it's flex cable? How is it in rough water?

Nirto man, the tc31 is pretty good in rough water, I've heard of the flex cables breaking from some of the guys, but mine has been perfect...the only problem I have had is with the stock radio system. reciever failure resulted in a nasty crash. Check out the Thundercat 31 thread...it has a lot of useful info from guys including Ron, who know a whole heck of a lot about boats. It was very helpful for me being that this is my first boat.

Same thing here C23, except I had no crash. Guys at the hobby shop right now should be putting in a new receiver for me. But other than that, no problems at all, but I would deffinently read through the entire 25 pages of TC31 thread, you will gain TONS of valuable information.
