Save some money and look for a good used gas boat. I picked up a Prather commander2 with a zenoah cheap at $250 to my door. I also have the Prather fun Cruiser which I bought new You can Now buy the Fun Cruiser RTR at

Yeah the guy that was selling it wouldnt budge from $500 so it will be a winter full of looking for a different boat. My buddy wants to get something that is comparible to the Enforcer so we can race.

Seen that before. Unfortunely used boats aren't selling for what they have invested in them, most will go for half-price just because of the word "used" no matter how little time they have on them. I got used to the fact that when I sell one, I'm going to lose my rear on it. I recently sold one that had never seen water for about what I had in the engine alone and it was RTR.

This is a good time of year to start looking for gas boats. I see lots of Funcruisers come up for less than $500. Price range is $200-400 with the older Homelite engines. Only look for the 30cc motor.
I find used Homelite 30cc motors for $30-40 and most are good runners.So if you only fine one witn a 25cc motor that's ok too.
