...R/C Boat that is! LOL!

Actually, my dad found this at Walmart, I thought it would be a funny thread to start.

I'm anxious to get some batteries in in and take her for a spin. Too bad I forgot it at home today...

Now that is something that should be in the gear section--a replica of all the models, with a decall kit so you can match it to the real thing. I would proudly display that on the fireplace mantel.

That photo was taken in my dining room, Laura has that center thing that usually has a flower arrangement or some other decorative thing. I'm amazed that the boat is still there - she isn't big on boat decor anywhere but in the basement, haha.

Now THERE'S a Malibu that's actually worth the MSRP :)

The only reason that Malibu is worth MSRP is because it comes equipped with 2 wakeboards already.

But Ian didnt disclose that they were all out of moomba rc boats becasue they sold for half the price and did accomplish the exact same job as good if not better did he:cool:

I bought one just like it for my little boy. He loved it. We ran it one morning for 15 minutes then it died. We replaced batteries and still could not get it to work.

We took it back to Walmart and got our money back......

He was so upset.......

I can assure you, Ian will do an engine swap, repaint it, upgrade this and that...and then launch it!
