True. Half the time it's not the seaweed that gets you, but the fishing line that people leave behind. I'll have another RC boat to push it back and be in an area where there are a usually a bunch of weekend paddle boaters. They love being the hero.I would make sure you have a way to recover it out there unless you like to swim.
Maiden Voyage in Kingston, NY on 10/01/2023. She is very slow, but everything works. Had my son standing on the opposite peer just in case it got stuck. Lots of seaweed, but not tangles.

We were there to see the Nao Trinidad a replica of the flagship of the Magellan-Elcano expedition leading the first sailing around the world. Probably just a tad farther than I am willing to take my RC Tug.
