Well in order to teach my son some seamanship, I got him a remote control boat. Notice of course it is a "fast-boat", just like dad's he says. Anyhow, I am teaching him basic navigation rules, etc. Notice, the first mate in traning is there too. She might have to stay after school tonight for some additonal training.

Of course I do. Yeah we let the 1st mate try it and she crashed it into my boat. Maybee it was the outfit. My motto is "Thongs are not only authorized, but highly encouraged". I'll have to give her more training, "handling the sticks". Seems like they all want to just grab them and start "jerking them around".

Good job on the early training! You need to get another one of those boats to do a little racing!:D :D

Stick handling is also very important and lots of practice is sometimes necessary!:laugher: :laugher:

I have been looking at a gas powered one myself, I was a lake a couple of weeks ago and there were four guys with gas ones and they said that they reach top speed of around 65 mph, they said they had around 500 to 700 hundred into those but said to start around 300 hundred for a good starter!

Never fails the fast you want to go the more the money you need to spend.:) :D
