    Default Proboat river jet..?

    There is a river by me and my roommate and I were thinking about getting two.

    be sure to get a current offering thats been updated .you can tell by the recommended lipo on the box .the new updated boats will say to use a 5000 mah 3s lipo .if it says anything else its the old model .

    I have posted some stuff recently in this thread, so read through here. https://forums.offshoreelectrics.com...-23-quot/page5

    I've been beating on mine all year, no issues. Stock servo went in the garbage before I even ran it, and I put a bushing in the steering nozzle for more predictable steering. Drill a hole for a grease port. I haven't ran it on 4s, but I find it completely unnecessary. 3s is perfect for what the boat is designed for IMO, but I strictly run mine in rivers with rapids.

    As stated, updated boats have the "5000 mah recommended battery" sticker on the box over the old "3200 mah recommended" sticker.

    Only reason im going to run it on 4s is because i already have 3 of them and no 3s.

    Is the hull durable? Im trying to go up stream over rapids and up logs and rocks within reason

    Its durable to an extent. The keel of the hull takes a beating if your bouncing off rocks, I put a couple small holes in mine.

    Are these fiberglass or plastic? Can you reinforce the hulls?

    ABS plastic. I mixed up some epoxy and poured it in the rear of the hull under the housing where it gets beat up. Haven't had an issue since, they were small holes.
