    You live amongst candy asses. An RC sail boat? Seriously? I can see it now, a bunch of dudes dressed up like Thurston Howell the Third talking about their RC sailboats.
    Screw that. An RC boat should be fast, loud, (and if not loud it should be even faster) and scare small children and induce cursing in even the most mild mannered of folks. "MOTHER ER THATS FAST!"

    Hey, where's your respect sonny? Old Iron Sides was a Sail Boat dude! It kicked some British Ass too. And it's still floating on top of the water. Arizona was or IS iron, rusted up barnacled Iron and it's been on the bottom since 1941. So get your candy asses straight!!!

    Oh I'm DEFINITELY getting an RC boat. They actually have RC regattas on the ponds in the development but they are all sailboats which could be very cool.

    There are only two things to consider when buying a RC boat:

    1) How fast can it go?

    2) How does it handle when trolling a crankbait? :tooth:

    The speed boats are are way too fast for that. And the ocean is too rough for trolling a wahoo bait with one.

    As long as the accelerator is rheostatic/analog, you should be able to control and optimize the speed for good crankbait depth. There is a secondary issue of buoyancy, however, once the wahoo/sailfish/blue marlin is hooked. Odds are good that you will instantly become the proud owner of a (formerly) radio controlled submarine.

    Just use a loop of light weight mono that's below the breaking strength of your main line, but heavy enough to hold the lure in place. When the fish hits, it'll pop the line and your lure's separate from the boat.

    They actually use RC boats here to run jug lines up next to the spillway at the dam.

    I read about a guy who used an RC boat to run baits out past the surf line to go shark fishing. He used a lifesaver roll to act as a timer to drop the bait.

    I've seen quite a few fishing RC boats since I started looking. But really if I feel like fishing, surf fishing is just a few minutes away, I can fish the intracoastal right from our dock or I can just launch my boat and go out. I just want a toy to play with while I enjoy my coffee and cigar by the pond.

    Ok these things are not cheap. I'm NOT doing that!

    But can you see the fish and watch the bite?

    Not a half bad idea! You could actually just use a clip and follow the boat down the beach walking. That could be an interesting way to do some surf fishing!

    Haven't picked it up yet. WAY too busy (and broke) with the new house and other things. Every time I turn around someone wants another 4-5 figure check...

    It could be a really nice one.


    Plus, you always talked about how you didn't like Glocks. Couldn't even say or spell it. Now look at you. I'm not saying you're willing to vote for Bernie Sanders, but you have been doing stuff you said you wouldn't do.

    I've spent my life constantly re-evaluating my decisions with an open mind and have a learned a lot in the process, ergo Glocks. Still no love but I now understand their place in the food chain.

    My next purchase is purely an opportunity to get a desirable classic in mint condition.

    So a pre-barrel nut Savage?

    I have one. It's called a 99. The last pretty rifle they made... NOT in .270 :tooth:
