Default Choosing a RC Boat..

I just cancled my oredered RC Boat so im looking for another boat. I was really into the Miss Budwiser 1/8 scale. But I also like to deep V's also. What bought can match me. I live in CLearwater Beach so im often using it in Saltwater and sometimes in choppy water. And Sametimes in Lakes or Ponds what would be a good boat for me this is my 2nd RC boat that im planning to buy.

I'd avoid the ProBoat Miss Bud myself for a lot of reasons. A few things to look at, the first is price. Figure out how much you'd like to spend. There are plenty of boat dealers in Florida to work with.

Im looking to spend $325 & Under. I'll pay good money but it has to be a good boat. How about the Traxxas Nitro RTR is that any good? It sounds good with a back up electric motor. But the price is 349.99.

You don't want the 1/8 scale Miss Bud, it runs about a Grand.
Do some searching in the forums, there are threads on just about every boat in your price range so you can find the one that you like.

If you want a 1/8th scale Miss Budweiser so bad, build it yourself. Get a set of plans from Newton Marine, a .65 to .67 nitro motor, a two channel radio with a 100+ inch-ounce torque servo for the rudder, and go to it. You will be looking at about the same cost as the Pro Boat Bud, but it will be a much better boat, with the cost spread over a longer time frame. Throw in some Aeromarine running gear and some decals from Pacific Graphics and you will have your boat. Just a thought
