Which boat would you guys suggest for the choppiest sea conditions?
Full on salt-water.

Are there any boats that are self-righting?

Are you talking like out in the open water or at the beach with crashing waves?

Im not really in to boats at all but I don't think any would be self righting apart from the v-hulls and even half of them look like they would easily sit upside down.

I had a quick look and I would probably go for something like this.

About 1m long with a v-hull and not too wide, you will have to make sure its got a 100% water tight seal too.

Even if there are any 100% of the time self correcting boats I would always make sure you can get to it at at time if need be in case you have a electrical or mechanical problem.

And look at the pictures in the link you got from ricostarr.

It's a DIY thing, and the trick is to make a water tight compartment with the right weight/volume to flip it over. The water compartment is in one of the sides of the hull, and has a big hole in the rear end of the boat, to let water in and out.

I'm not into boats, just got fascinated by this "trick"
oh BTW: youtube and google is your friend

YW, the site is in dutch, most self reising are mono's (deep vee) if you are handy you can make a camber like you seen on the foto yourself.
I have an cat 115cm in lenght, its a bit to small so i think for sea but for sweet water its oke
Its an hpr06, just google it, i have pleaced a video here on the forum mayby you seen it already.
the thing about sea is, its f*** up all your aluminium parts an ball bearing..

i took my princess and my genisus out in choppy weather today i gave both boats full stick and i only found myself swimming for the genisus as the princess stood upright even when though it was airborne 50% of the time it always landed upright but as anyone would tell the princess isnt the fastest boat in the water

HobbyKing sells a similar boat, the JollyMotor, either as RTR or as kit without motor.
