Default newbie needs help

i have had a billion rc cars and now im looking for a boat. i prefer eletric cause in NJ most lakes are eletric only. i want to be able to use in lakes and a slow moving river called the paulinskill i do not want to spend a ton of money seeing that im in college and at college only place for a boat is if i go to the hudson river so the boat will only get used in the summer and when im home so i dont want to spend a ton of money. i also want a boat that has soem good speed and upgradable. also want parts to easily be found

$ 250 should buy a very nice boat.

Do you want Military .....civilian......work boat....cruiser / yacht......racing........ possible submarine?

Need to know you 1 st & 2 nd preferences.

Do or can you use the RC stuff from your cars. Both are surface frequencies. That would save a bunch of money. How large & what size car motor could we "borrow" ?

I might add that I have never found RC boaters near me. I just run them on my own. RC cars are all over the state.
Something to check out BEFORE spending any money on a boat.

This is available for $5200 delivered.

dan s i looked at the links the suppervee brushless is nice but im not sure i will only be able to use the boat in the summer so i dont want a lot of money invested into one if i wont use it much but i guess the brushless one is a lot faster and better built and i already have bats with deans on them and i think the brushless will sell better if i decide i dont liek it
