What fun is a banjo, it does not fly or float for that matter!

Lee, you could say the same about RC cars. LOL. At least a boat make waves!

Go back to your plane flying, or go shoot something! AHAHAHAHA.

Nice vid, and the scenery in the backgound is nice too. The grass is getting green, spring is on the way.

Over here we have been getting snow flurries all day but the snow is melting. However now it is getting colder this evening and the ground is white again.
Thanks, making these vids is not easy, as I'm controlling the boat while filming, and not using a head mounted cam or so, I have to operate it with my hands.

Subs do have up and down.

I think a boat has a more relaxing nature than flying. Even on self stabilizing helis, you need to monitor throttle, on a boat you can just let it float if you need to warm your hands, grab the camera, get a phone call, whatever. Plus, I like the dynamics of the water getting pushed away by the hull, breaking through waves. Also, it's a nice diversion from flying, or RC driving, what I do as well. And remember, us Dutchies have boats in our veins, so to speak.

You are supposed to play on it, not hit those pigs on the head with it. Although, for some that might be better, putting the poor animal out of it's misery of hearing the "music"...

Right, the dynamics of the water can be appealing, and cars make dust and can even fly some small distance. Btw, even boats can, it's not unusual for an RC speedboat to make a back flip.

I'd like to see a fisherman in a fighting chair trolling for tuna/marlin. How cool would that be???

Early meeting at the VFW today boys and girls. A bunch of us are heading out to a luncheon being held for the "Big Guy" (Richard DeNoyer) shortly after the meeting. I'll try to post some pics later. Have a great day all...

Mike.

Better yet have Miss Tina fly one of your planks while you use it for target practice with your shot gun or even your baseball bat!

You have too much time on your hands!

You could build one. Considering your work on your planes, you are capable enough.

It might help if you send him a wooden shoe for a hull. When I was still living on the island back there as a little boy I had a wooden shoe sailboat that my mom and dad made for me.

There was even a sail wagon made of aluminum tubing with a big sail on it and 3 wheels that used to race along the beach in the spring and fall. It also had bicycle pedals and two seats.

I considered building a viking longboat once. But, I don't really have anywhere to sail it. So, I didn't. Hahhaa, love them. Never know.

I remember my father making me a boat from some plates of wood, when I was 10 or so. It had a cargo hold, and sails. A metal bar under the hull acted as keel. However, on it's maiden trip (it was not RC controlled) it quickly had water entering the hull, as it splashed over the deck when the wind made the boat tilt a little. It didn't sink as there were pieces of foam glued inside, for extra buoyancy, so it didn't go fully under. With the string that was attached to the hull, my father reeled it back in. After that the keel was removed, and it found a new purpose as a cargo ship, to play with.

Hey Ethan:

Nice to see you again. Hope the home project is going as expected. We never really had a winter here. Today there was rain, hail and thunder. It came from the east, wonder if Mike blowing off steam caused it?
