Okay, I cheated a little here. I didn't want to waste three pictures on this, but did want to tell the story. This Model Yacht Club is in Golden Gate Park across from a pond (it's called a lake, but it's a pond) where, on weekends wonderful sailing takes place. In the morning, it's the turn of the motorized vessels - anything might appear - along with their docks, warehouses and other shoreside details. In the afternoon, when the wind comes up it's the turn of the sailboats. All remotely controlled. I was lucky, on a weekday to find this little speedboat breaking records all alone on the water. Probably disturbing the sleep of the little turtles who also live here.

Cool capture. So do you have a slip at the facility then :)

Nice capture of the R.C. boat in action. If it weren't for the background I would probably think it was a real boat.

R-C toys are always fun to watch.

Interesting place, it's always nice to see those little boats. You captured the speed very well! Thanks for the story.
