Step 3: Design

I designed this boat in Tinkercad. I started my design by lining up 3 cylinders. Added wedge to help it cut through the water. I designed a case for the motor and the inserted into the boat. I made a spinner by inserting a rotated rectangle into a cylinder flipping it then adding a hole to put it onto the motor. I uploaded a AA battery holder from thingiverse http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:331394. I cut off the screw holes so that it would fit well in the boat.
