£6 paddle boat
Saw this on eBay I thought it might be a fun thing to build in my spare time and for £6 you can't go wrong. The kit was supplied with laser cut parts, a set of of plastic gears and a small brushed motor. The power comes from a 3.7v 25c 380mAh battery (this isn't part of the kit though ) It took me around 4 hours to build and after the glue had set the whole of the boat had a coat of Eze-Kote resin to make it waterproof.
Sailing the boat was fun although it made a mess with the paddle throwing water everywhere.
