They have also built a few RC versions of the big boats that were given to buyers of their larger counterparts mostly for display. They did rig some up for RC but were poor handling.
True you can lay it up with heavy mat and they would be a bit overweight, these are woven hybrid with kevlar.
Mine handles fine to me, but I am not an expert on these. We will see soon, we have a lake, more of a pond to me, close by that is haveing some races, we are taking mine over there.
