Re: Weekend Project - Re-power dinghy

It would make commutes to town for beer a lot faster. Though it'd take a lot of trips to restock, due to weight limits.

Is it me, or are does he begin to loose sufficient lift at the clips end? AKA it looks like he's headed for a nose dive from altitude.

And I'm guessing the idea for said craft involved drinking, heavily, copious "smoking" of you know what, & phrases like "Dude, what if we..."?

I prefer helium ballons tied to a lawn chair and a BB gun to contol elevation gain.

Agree...looked like the nose dive was cut out.
