I'm thinking about getting back into rc boatin.. My boat back in the early 90's was a 46" Majic with a 65 Rossi. I was wondering if anyone has heard of the Thunder Tiger Outlaw..

Which one, the nitro version? They make it in electric also.
OK, assuming that it's the fuel burner that you're looking at, it's an OK boat. The hull is nice and the radio system isn't bad for an AM radio. The problem seems to be that it goes through the clutch bearings like there's no tomorrow. Eliminating the clutch somehow would be the first thing that I'd do with it. One member here tossed out the whole engine, replaced it with a MAC .45 and made a screamer out of it.

That's about in near that size or else you'd have to look at Pro Boat boats.
