    I have owned a 56 apache, and can tell you with a nice zenoh 260 and pipe in it you can wave jump for ever and never turn it over. I live near a lake and it never once turned over in wave jumping. BIG BOAT!!

    I'd like to get a gas boat in the future but I'm not sure what would be best for a beginning boater. I want gas because of the runtimes...

    What would be better for a boating noob... Deep V or Cat?

    they both handle about the same, the v hull is more forgiving to mistakes and turns equally well in both directions.

    The Aeromarine stuff is Top notch there website needs alittle work its kinda hard to find exactly what you need sometimes.

    I would go for one of there prebuilt ready to run boats as your first boat, if they offer one with a clutch and a water pump go for that model. it will allow you to let the boat idle so you can ease into the throttle, the standard direct drive models are pretty much launch and run no sitting around idleing.

    Another good site to visit is www.whobbies.com look up there enforcer super g rtr its a very good low cost v hull and is worth every penny and very very user friendly.

    www.aeromarinerc.com is the website for aeromanine laminate boats search up ready to run or RTR and look through what they have available anyone you choose would be fine they don't make a bad boat, neither does warehouse hobbies.

    Yeah I have a few boats but all are nitro powered. A group of us got into them pretty heavily about 5 years ago.....Now they just sit on the shelves.

    What boat did you run at silver lake? Gas?

    Good find, lessen. I was checking out the site, and have bookmarked it for future reference. I found some excellent hardware at very good prices for my boat project.

    hey modifier, my shockwave is a gasser... 26 Zen w/ tune pipe. It does approx 45 mph or so. I love the run time, approx 35-40 min a tank. I off-loaded my 1/12th Miss Bud Nitro, didn't care for the direct drive stuff. Too much adjusting on motor also.
