Murphy's law of model boating #1001

If your boat cuts out in the middle of the pond, no matter which way the wind is blowing it will always end up in the most inaccessible spot
  <:(
LOL, I have a r/c yacht and the on/off switch decided to go on the fritz in a tight turn, locking the rudder, in the middle of the lake and the yacht decided to pirouette like Nureyev on steroids. I had no waders but thankfully it was summer time and I was wearing shorts and the lake is only about a metre deep, so I could wade out and retrieve it. But I had a very uncomfortable drive home. :-)

at least it was only a meter deep though, i was contemplating swimming and if it was summer i would have been daft enough to swim for it.
