Default WHy do you sail boats?

Hi all, I'm doing a project for my history class, and I'm asking everybody about why they chose their particular RC hobby. I'm doing it this way 'cause everyone's reasons are unique. Tell your pals, 'cause the more ppl talk, the better my project will be and the better grade I get

I enjoy building scale models and solving the various problems, usually of my own making, but once the model has sailed sucessfully, lose interest

I have several reasons for building 'boats'. I like building them, for one. I used to 'do' the model airplane thingy, but unfortunately, couldn't fly them (love aviation and am a pilot). Flying the 'full sized' planes makes flying the 'small' ones a problem at times, everything is 'backwards' when they are coming toward you! Just tired of fixing my own 'goofs'.
Model boats are 'easier'. Sinking a boat isn't quite as easy as crashing a plane. It's certainly possible though (don't ask!).
My reaction time isn't exactly what it used to be either. 'Water' things usually happen slower than 'air' things, so I can handle it. I'm not 'old', I just have a 'slightly used' body!
