I've been into RC boats for awhile now. I've just gotten into model rockets alittle while back. I think you can see were this is going. Granted, it would only go one direction and probably fairly fast. Has anyone built such a beast.:D :D :D

A good motor might be the E9's. Low thrust, long burn. Depending on the size of the boat.

anyone check out the slo-mo film on his site ?
the boat jumps a wave ,dives under and does a 180 underwater
than it surfaces ,and flips one more time as it's heading right back at him ,pretty cool !!!

he uses A thru D engines and some clusters .but I think Astro is right some E's would be even better!

A D12 or C11 booster to an E9 would be awesome. Big initial boost to get it moving through the drag caused by the water and the E9 to keep it at speed

Or maybe a C11 to F10... Would that have enough thrust?
