Default HELP - Radio / Receiver Selection

I am entering the RC boat hobby and had a few questions regarding Radios and receivers.
Currently the boat I am working on has a very basic Futaba pistol grip radio. I would like to upgrade to something that could run multiple boats. (at different times of coarse) I plan on visiting the lake and would like to only have one radio system. Here are my questions:

1. Recommendations for a multi-model radio system. Futaba?, Airtronics?, JR?
2. Can any transmitter work with any receiver or do they have to be from the same brand?
3. What type of receiver would you recommend for boating?
4. Fail safe????

Thank you everyone for your help.
