This R/C watermelon boat would work better rigged up as trimaran, seeing as it “met with an untimely death after tipping over.” But melon seaworthiness aside, this build would be fun on a warm summer day. Grab some friends, cannibalize the guts of some R/C planes, hollow out the buoyant melons of your choice, and have a floating fruit face-off.

    A really nice job done here to making a watermelon boat.I really like it very much.Radio Control (RC) boats are a hobby fans young and old to enjoy boating. Sailboats, motorboats and warships are just some of the many designs of fans enjoy RC boats. These boats are powered by electric motors, gasoline engines and even wind power. However, despite all these differences, RC boats fiberglass or plastic, it all starts with a boat mold.
