    yeah, its like a friggen black art, All hand sharpened, supposed to take like an hour to do.

    Yes, I bought a few rough cast props, filed them to shape and polished them up. It does take a while to do and to get it balanced. Just beware of the dust, the metals in them are very bad for your lungs!

    - I want something simple. Not really looking for a whole new hobby, just something to screw around with
    - Faster is better
    - Probably prefer electric over gas, but feel free to change my mind
    - Is a couple hundred bucks a reasonable budget?

    I check them out on FB and CL once in a while. It always seem like they need work, or are really old.
    I have an Old Proboat 26" catamaran with steering servo, speed control (new), and motor I would consider selling pretty cheap if interested. It would need a radio/reciever, charger, and batteries. Runs on 4s, ~40 mph boat.
