Do you ever feel like taking out your aggression on a fellow boater? Here's your chance to indulge that ultimate fantasy in a group where it's OK to sink your mate's boat.
Check out The Australian Battle Group a society of Aussies who "build and sail 1/144 scale Radio-Controlled Model Warships from WWI and WWII which are armed with CO2 powered cannon and armoured in thin balsa. These vessels engage each other in combat on ponds across Australia, endeavoring to punch holes in each others hull with their cannon until one of the vessels sinks or flees. Yes, the cannon really do fire, the vessels really do take damage and sink, and yes, it is legal in all states and territories of Australia without a gun license."
Does that look like fun, or what?
