My wife is the reason

My family was out on one of the bigger lakes here. We were sitting anchored about 75' from shore and the kids were swimming when I decided to throw my stock Traxxas Blast in the water. The Blast is a nice little boat with a decent turn radius. I drove it close to shore and then out into the deep part of the lake. My dad tried it out. My 7 yr. old son even went around a buoy about 50' away a few times. I asked my wife if she wanted to try and she said yes. The two rules were do not hit the bigger boat and do not go near the shore with it. I watched her run it straight onto shore and beach it. When she looked at me she said "this is why I don't do these things". She had 75' to turn a boat that is not known for it's speed using a 2 stick, 2 channel controller and failed.

How many of you with RC boats ever had to swim to shore to rescue your boat?
