Why a boat for Barbie?  Clark Sailsbury has been into R/C models since 1983, and with 3 daughters always had Barbie dolls that they played with, and they saw him playing with R/C models of various sorts the entire time that they were growing up. On more than one occasion, they tried to make Barbie fit in various models (mostly planes and boats) that I had built. The basic problem was always the same. Her scale was always just a little too big for the models. He finally decided to build a boat that would truly fit a real Barbie, although we still had to take off her legs. I thought it would be fun to build a boat that would give Barbie a thrill. Barbie is about 1/7th scale, so when her boat is going 20 mph, it will seem to her like 140 mph, and that should be a thrill to anyone!
