    Re: Deciding on a Sailboat

    It works great for that Max! I don't have reverse but wished I did several times. I estimate 2 evenings of time to build one, simpler is better. I have also used this one for fishing, poke the hook in the foam at the back lightly out of reach of the prop, then go to where ever you think the fish might be, give it a quick tug to dislodge the hook and drive the boat back. Voila - longest cast in town!

    If you want a real challenge though, two or three airboats and a Styrofoam ball - water polo! It's a lot harder than you think.
    Had one of those but it broke!

    He hee.. Great ideas.
    I wish my kids were younger- I would have gone for the water polo idea with them. Now they prefer a tablet to RC . Teenagers!
