Default best 1st boat help please!

id like a quick electric boat, one that i could later hop up if i wanted to. like always, i want speed, but dont want to spend more than $100. right now i only run off road truggies, but want to give boating a chance.

i know its not super high quility, but i like the proboat mini v. it is not fast, but accelerates quick. and i think that losi has hop up motors that i could put on later. i do worry that it would not handle a crash well, but then again i wouldnt think that most boats would.
