    R/C Boat

    My boys would like an R/C boat to play with in the pool. Bought one the other day at Target that worked for about 15 minutes and then crapped out. It was a New Bright brand.
    I'm not looking to spend a fortune on some professionsal boat (pricing on some of these are insane at hobby stores). Anyone have any luck/suggestions for a reasonable boat?

    Thanks

    Try finding the Aqua Craft Mini's series... they are about 99 bucks ready to run... least these do have replacement parts for them

    DH received a Makko Mini Sub from our local Leslie's for Father's Day. It runs through batteries quickly but he and the boys love it!

    I was lurking around Leslies the other day, and they have an RC boat skimmer combo. You could let the kiddos have a blast, and skim the crud out of the pool @ the same time!
