Dumas 19ft Racing Runabout

Hello, just thought I would post some pictures of my boat build. It is the Dumas 19ft Racing Runabout (which has been posted previously by Pat Tritle, who did an excellent job). This is my first kit build of a r/c boat. I have been in the plastic model hobby for some time and have done a few electric park flyer r/c aircraft. I also scratch built a hull for the Marie L. Hanlon tug (from rcboatmodeler) when I was a teenager, but never finished the project. I'm glad I stumbled upon the maritime world once again! My wife, however, would love to have her kitchen island counter space back! haha.

I have a question if anyone is willing: regarding the running hardware of this Dumas; is it worth upgrading it to something such as the MACK products stuff? I don't necessarily care for the tiny plastic propeller supplied in the kit, and I like the o-ringed stuffing boxes available from MACK.

Does anyone have any suggestions on alternate propellers for this runabout? Thanks for any advice.

Without futher ado; here are the pictures:
