How to rule the high seas of your swimming pool

Arrrrrrrrrr!

Hammacher Schlemmer

If you spent your days singing "Yo-ho, yo-ho, a pirate's life for me" way before Keira Knightley made it cool, this might be the ultimate pool toy for you. This $330 remote-control pirate ship, which comes with a fully watertight hull, is "faithfully detailed to resemble an 18th-century merchant vessel," according to the product page. Plus, it can be controlled from up to 500 feet away, which means that you can chart its course from the comfort of your pirate loft , or even from the kitchen while you're heating up some Jolly Roger toast . Arrrrrrr. Pass the rum, mateys!

Just make sure it doesn't get attacked by a menacing remote-control shark .
