    Im trying to make a small river boat for fishing below dams in areas that cant be reach by a larger boat. the boat im looking to build is out of foam and runs on a trolling moter. some wheres around 2 to 3 foot long. its not big enought to hold someone. its used to drag my line bate a bobber acroos the water to the lock wall. Then reel the boat back in. for those that are reading this that dont know what im talking about.Is there any one out there that can help me in the prodject.

    you can buy a little remote controlled boat at a hobby shop, thats what they use below the dam to get those beach balls over on the far side

    I saw a remote controlled boat at wal-mart the other day. (used for fishing) It had a video demonstrating it.

    I am almost certain if you tapped into the grand knowledge of the b.o.c library you would find all the things you could ever want. I have a vage memory but i think when i was pokin round the library i found plans on how to build just the boat you speak of. Hope this helped:wink:
