My Invention- the swimming duck

I know most duck hunters have seen those remote controlled ducks for 100 dollars or more. Well I went to wallmart and bought a $20 remote controlled boat from the toys section. With some minor adjusting i was able to put a decoy on it with no bottom in it. Secured the decoy with some velcro, painted the small part of the boat that was still exposed, added some "Great stuff" foam to the sides, to help the small boat handle the extra weight, and painted it as well, and then i had my own remote controlled duck for under 25 dollars. Since it is the 2 week break in season, I have yet to see how the ducks react. I will post later the results.
