$300-350.00 is going to put you into a nitro boat, gas boats will run you double that if not a little more if we're talking new.
Gas boats generally require less support equipment if you do it right but nitro costs more and glow plugs need to be replaced more often than spark plugs. I own both types of boats and although both can be frustrating at times it's hard for me if I had to to pick just one.
In your neighborhood price-wise are two of the Pro Boat boats, the Shockwave 36 mono and the Thunder-Cat 31, both with the same powerplant and radio system. I think that you'd like one of these better than any Kyosho boat.
You have a 'glas hull instead of plastic, a larger engine and hull but still has the cheap Python AM radio system.
