After fourteen years of racing and playing with Rc Cars as a teenager to young adult, I gave Rc boating a go at it. In 1997 my brother and I bought a Kyosho Speedmaster and Wavermaster RTR boats. Aside from being fun, little toys, we were largely underwhelmed with the performance of them. Quickly finding out that the Speedmaster lacked the speed and the Wavemaster was a hydroplane that by design was made to run on flat water. So much for the Wavermaster and Speedmaster names. But the boxes looked really pretty. After a few hours of run-time(and countless more hours of repair work), we were both frustrated and bored with them. It was quickly concluded that we needed to upgrade to better rc boats. We searched up and down the internet for aid in our exploit but whatever information we could find was scarce and furthermore limited. After an extended period of frustration, we found some forums that dealt with rc fast electric boats. Jumping from one forum to the other we found many knowledgeable members who were able to help us with our problems. On the products end, even though there were some retailers and manufacturers selling rc boating products in the USA, many of the products we wanted had to be sourced by buying them direct from European dealers. Surfing several forums and needing to order things from different websites from outside of the USA became time consuming and expensive.
After having struggled through this process of attaining all of the necessary knowledge and hardware needed to assemble an Rc boat of my own, I determined that I, myself, would make a place to help newcomers to our hobby by facilitating the entire process and by dampening the learning curve in electric Rc boating. As a pairing of the shop, forum, and supplementary articles. www.OffshoreElectrics.com was built to accomplish this goal. Parts of countless different brands were imported from all around the globe: Companies located in Germany, China, Australia and, of course right here in the US of A. Early morning hours were spent detailing every process and function included in the hobby as well as managing a small but expanding forum.
As time went on and as the business matured, OffshoreElectrics.com went from a business selling some parts from my boiler room of my house to the online Rc boat hub for the United States and much of the world. We are getting new items every day and produce some of our own OSE custom parts and cable assemblies. Informative articles are still present on the site. Also, the forum has since exploded with nearly 15,000 members, adding, on average, thirty new members each week. Each individual brings their own perspectives, knowledge, and ideas to the table. Each of these aspects come together to produce a website that will be the center of your Rc boating experience.
Since its inception, OSE has advanced a long way towards reaching its principal goal: to make fast electrics rc boating a hobby accessible to a variety of ages, financial statuses, and interest levels. Now, and in the years to come, we intend on always striving to reach that goal.
