i'm thinking of getting one of those 50 dollar boats off ebay, and gutting it for parts as a retreval boats.....

also, you could get a cheep tug, and put a u bend infront of it to capture the other boat, your villian would work also.


and does that recovery boat have a camera on it? those are very nice when the boat is far away.....

http://www.comforthouse.com/poolcleaner.html

it is called the "jet net". I removed the guard in the front and now it scoops the boat right up. i am going to try the Villian boat next,.......more pics to follow. I picked it up this morning at the pool store for $80.00. It does a good job cleaning the pool too. I sat on the side of the pool and skimmed the whole thing.
