Humm, this is a very general question. Most peeps that have no clue as to where to get these items would just Google "R/C boat hardware" or just look around on this site.

But for me a good starting point is: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0093p?&C=BGF

Matt it's an unique design rear hydroplane about 1/8 scale, length 37 ' x width 22" I plan on using a70 size nitro engine. My main concern is prop size followed by prop depth, so I'm looking for an adjustable strut "sorry if the term is wrong " while getting her trimed out. any suggestions ?
Thanks NJ
P.S The design I made calls for the strut to come through the bottom of the boat the transom is too thin.

www.rossisales.com a.k.a. Speedmaster should have most of what you want. Good stuff.
It is best to look around though to see what looks good to you.
