Try RC Marine design. It looks very similar to the Bud Boat and the Miss Elam boat they have on the sight.

be prepared to invest about $1500+ less radio. there are a couple of guys who will build you an 8th scale real nice. about $750 for a finished wood hull if you ask around here, about $550 for fiberglass here or here. thats unpainted, unrigged, no engine, no hardware of any kind, no pipe, no prop.....

and plan on waiting 6 months if your lucky

still want one? hehe

there's a hell of a lot of experienced boaters in your neck of the woods. some of the fastest in the world for sure. check out any boat club in the Indy area. they'll steer you right. here's one for starters-

http://www.indymbc.com/

if you look at the top of the page, you'll see a "secretary" email contact. his name is Larry LaHue and he's a great guy. i met him at the 2000 internats in florida. very knowledgable boater. good luck
