I love being a Dad! Spending some quality time with my son Maurice (morris) - today we break out the Aquacraft FiRE RESCUE 17 Boat! Maurice has been eyeballing this boat all winter.. and is finally old enough to give it a try. This is his first attempt at piloting a boat this big - but Dad thinks its the perfect speed for a little RC ADVENTURER! He needed some help sometimes, but I was very proud of him as he sped across the open water, learning how to use a dual stick controller. This is a challenge for adults when they learn, let alone a young fella - but he is picking it up very quickly. Soon, he will be out there racing speed boats with Dad :) I suggest the radio control hobby for all Dad's and Sons out there, if possible. It's a great way to spend a family afternoon, puttering along in a Silly Toy Boat, Laughing at Silly Jokes! What better way to spend an afternoon!
