Y'all had any fun with these little wonders. I was thinking of giving one as a gift to Dad for Fathers Day. He reminisced about how much cheap fun these were for him in his youth.

Any thoughts?
Is this the little boat with a very small candle that uses steam to propel itself?
Can these be purchased or do they have to be made? I would think that instead of just running straight, it may be fun to put some R/C gear in them?
They are great fun and dont need a lot of space to use, the bath will do.
They can be bought, try your local hobby shop, or there are plans on the net as they are really easy to make.
