Really depends on where you plan to run the boat and how fast you want to go.
Each person has different opinions on what is the best boat.
There are certainly a bunch of great options out there.
Price also comes into play what is your budget?

If you are not looking for a lot of speed, the AquaCraft P-27 Gunslinger is a great running fun boat.   Runs on 3S packs.

Pro Boat River Jet. No rudders or props to worry about. Self-Righting. Sweet looking. 23", so easy to pack.

For hydro I'd skip the aquacraft. And check out that new Proboat Ul-19. Videos look very nice.

Just recently saw a Pro Marine Skater.  It was a really nice build and performed really well.

Just wondering, and coming from a guy who ran Nitro all his life. I would take it that you would need 3
Fully charged lipo packs to run 3 heats, or should I bring my generator to run my chargers. Or can I just use an inverter of my vehicle to charge battery. I have electric planes and just charge 3 or 4 packs, but boats take way more capacity than planes.

Just getting interested in electric boats recently. The ul 19 looks bad ass. It might be as fast or faster than my whip 20.

Cool stuff thanks to battery technology!!!!

I may be buying the uL 19. awesome boat!! and for the price I would pay for a nitro motor by its self less batteries and ESC

Thanks Jim
