The ultimate tender...

There were a couple of blokes using these foil-bike thingies near where I keep my boat today.

When they went they were very, very good, but when they stopped they were horrid...

I wonder if you could start one in deep water? -or- How good are you at the side stroke dragging one of these back to the beach?

There did appear to be a tiny problem...

It did not appear to be possible to restart in deep water.

I'm sure a solution will come in time.

Neat concept, la!
