And it is called a noodle tug, because it is made from a pool noodle?

i think its very clever, when the kids get tired of it they still have the radio and running gear to transfer to something else, May be some will be inspired to become boat nut z like us lol lol

But I think this can be hacked easily

These have been around for a while:

Shoot it would be a very easy build, no plans needed. i remember the fellow on the boards here last year did the pool noodle Zodiac and it worked out well. maybe ill go to walley world and pick up a noodle today. i think all is needed is a plywood base to bend or shape the noodle around, then build a water tight base for your cabin of your choice to sit on plus hide all the gear, ill do some experimenting to see what glue sticks well to the noodle foam..

I wonder if anyone has the instructions and plans for these little devils? There must be some simple materials list and layout photos floating around. Pardon the pun.
