Default Places to shop for boat KIT(s)? - Electrics

My first boat was a GP Marine Dagger, was a great beginner boat. BUT, years have passed by and I have yet to touch the thing due to a few essential parts missing of which I can no longer find. That being said, I want to venture back to the water. My main issue now, where do I shop that has a decent selection? I know it's not tower, the majority of what they have is all RTR... in EVERYTHING lately. I wouldn't mind assembling a boat to be honest. What I'm lookin for is a deep-vee, and ONLY electric. Nitro is too expensive these days, too much of a hassle, and brushless is so much more convenient and isn't a nuisance to others on the lakes.

Check out www.offshoreelectrics.com . I'm a nitro and gas burner but have bought a few things from Steve, I highly recommend him.

I fell in love with the looks of the Raider and Challenger hulls (on the electric hulls page)... now, do these come with or without instructions? I have the feeling that you build to your likings. Unfortunately, I don't have a clue how to do the internals yet, let alone the external hardware.

I might surrender and buy a Formula Fastech by ProBoat... are there no ARR's anymore? I could care less about a radio, obviously I'll use the same I use for my Redcat Rampage... I just want some part in the assembly darn it! EDIT - With that being said... I think I'm leaning towards upgrading what I have, since I managed to find my Dagger!

I want to thank those of you who participated in helping. I did go with tower in the end, surrendered to the RTR world we live in today. Can't wait to prep the SuperVee for water It should show up tomorrow!
