    Hi Gentleman, I am new to combat boats and trying to read and learn as much as I can, looking for a boat built or kit, would appreciate your help and recommendations. I live in Howell Michigan and would like to attend one of your events or club session, I have never seen a combat ship or event. Does anyone have a ship for sale?

    Regards John

    Welcome John, We have a couple guys in Detroit area, Owosso Grand Rapids,Muskegon and Me up north. we normally battle in Saranac.
    We will have a build probably in January. talk to us and ask question I will add you to a local GLAS Private thread on here for local stuff.
    we have local boats for you to run. we suggest you not buy anything until you have seen and ran a ship in battle first.
    sorry must ask are you older than 16, if not you will need an adult.

    We do have boats for sale.
    If you have limited building experience, that might be the way to go.

    yeah, the spares they have aren't half-broken down chumps either. the spare VDT at the last scrap was quite the pain to pin down, and that new I-Boat should do quite nicely too
