I bought a Magic Vee for my 4 year old son and I to play with as a first boat after seeing videos and reading rave reviews. When I tested it last week, I was very impressed with the speed but it did take on a bit of water which apparently is normal. I recharged the battery and took it out with my son the next day but the speed was severely down. I thought I had perhaps not charged the battery properly so I came home and tried again after a good charge...Same problem. I have greased the shaft and bought a new battery with no improvements. It is still running ok but nowhere near as fast as on the first day. Could it be the motor?? I am looking to order a new motor and a new shaft but want to know if water could be the cause of the reduced top speed.
Any help would be great.
