Bucker factor?
Boat - pucker?

The feeling that puts our tails between our legs that sets in as you visualize your boat in a hop, skip, into a submerging dive, in the middle of the lake - especially when you have no dry retrieval method.

Even though the water eventually is nice, it's still a fear to conquer nonetheless. Do I have the proper terminology?

Ok, why? My common sense says go get the thing, flip it over, dump the water out, and keep going.

Grim, like myself, is used to being at a club pond or a largish race where many boats are running or are present. Swimming to retrieve a boat is a big no-no in the model boat racing world. I'm sure this is what he was referring to.

Yeah, I have the same kind of thoughts. I always have a retrieve boat, so swimming has never crossed my mind. Although, I have done it 20-something years ago to retrieve an old Hot Shot 45.

It's not a good idea though if other boats, model or otherwise, are present.

I have spent years trying to settle into the reports of people drowning as they try to retrieve a boat I DESIGNED.. you can imagine the intent..my intent was for them to have a good time.. not die at the pond.. Please NEVER.. please..I am asking in kindness and ALL seriousness, PLEASE never swim for a dead boat.

Thank you

Grim
