Ok I can get a boat called a pursuit it's yellow with pursuit written sideways across the front not sure if it's a hobby king setup or not its abit over 700 mm runs a .25 nitro in it... Has any one had an experience with these are the ok or garbage it's a sexy looking hull looks decent quility strong fibre glass etc good prop, rudder, thun fins, cav plates etc but any advice would be great thanks... Andy

Pix? Links?
Off-hand I'd say that it's some Chinese eBay boat with the .25 in it. Might be OK, maybe not.

These are OK a buddy of mine runs a FE version
the join in the hull is the weakest link after a relatively slow flip it broke round the seam for a good 3rd of the hull so something too watch out for
they handle the water conditions really good even in windy rough conditions and turn on a dime once trimmed in
you wont go for wrong with 1 for sure the only thing i would think is the .25 nitro will be under powered for it maybe worth throwing a bigger engine at a later date

EJ, a lot of the stuff is the same as what Joe at Zippkits sells so it may be from HOR.
