2 little toys?!? Hmmmmmmm.....
They are 12v electric boats with built in water cannons!
Now that's pretty cool!
They go pretty good. Now I just have to figure out how to store them! Took the little guy out in one last night and he loved shooting the water cannon.
Gotta post some action video!
Awesome!!! Where did you get them? What is the brand name??
The wife found them on craigslist. They used to be made under the Escape brand by Johnson Outdoors (Old Town, Humminbird, Minn Kota) but they have since closed that division. The model name is "Fun Boat" and based on my research they won an award for it when it came out. So they have a little minn kota trolling motor for power and a water pump for the cannon. Throw a 12v battery in there and you are good to go. There is a dial for selecting your desired speed.
There are no videos of these things online so I'll have to get something made and out there for the world. At a cost of $2k new each I can see why you don't see many around. In the mean time here is a quick clip
Looks like we need to rig up a waterproof battery box, a 12v pump and a spray gun for a paddleboat showdown. Congrats on the Craigslist find!
