How can I stop this wire from weighting down my RC boat?

I am building my own model boat, but I am using a small cord instead of an RC system. The cord shouldn't weight too much, I am just planning on buoying it up with some foam pieces.

Can anyone think of a better way to stop the cord from interfering with the boats operation?

I really dont have a clue for a boat,But the trick is,is to have some
kind of tension on the line to keep it up higher,an the boat at a set
circle radius.

If it was me,I would install a low budget radio gear for about
30.00 bucks...
