I want to buy a new boat...?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have looked around a bit but I still have some questions about the haul:

1. the Catamarans are better for cornering (so more stable) but the Deep-V hauls are better for rough waters (so again more stable?). So witch is actually more stable ?i will be using in rough waters (lake Ontario, where there are real boats passing) and in some calmer waters (almost glass).

2. I have looked up some boats in both deep-V styled and catamarans.
Catamarans: ProBoat Miss Geico 29
ProBoat BlackJack 29
Genesis OffShore (41.8 inch)
AquaCraft Moltey Crew (similar to Miss Geico)

Deep-V: ProBoat Impulse 31

Those are the ones I was looking at.

Speed, not burning up after 30 runs and not flipping over (although it is inevitable at some point) are my main criterias.

If there are any other boats you would suggest, please post the name of it.

Thank you in advance for all your help!

Try A.C. Boats .They have racers and also sport boats from .21 right up to gassers with different hull types.

Hello Lawrence well from what your saying you want to run on lake Ontario
but your location says Quebec.
what I would do is for you to contact one of the boat clubs in your area
for a mix type of power plants contact these guys http://www.nlmbc.org/index.php/homepage

for mostly fast electric boats contact these guy http://www.grandrivermarinemodellers.com/Home.php

this would be your best bet since they will be able to guide you in the right direction
and not buy something that will fall apart in no time.

good luck and injoy this great hobby Boats.
got to love the water.
