I watched that solowheel girl with my mouth open, couldn't believe what I was seeing! I've been on the segeway, but never knew of a unicycle thingy, that's amazing! I want one, I may never walk again to the fridge.....
Nick, I had similar plans but with a larger bike, a 650 Honda
Transalp, about 340#s I believe. I did a bit of research
, planning, asking questions in boat design forums
For me it was for the Great Loop, license
not an issue.
An N/A told me it would change the CG of a boat (didn't even know how big my boat was going to be) then said it would roll around and be a hazard on deck
, it would rust in two weeks and I'd never get out of the mud or off a beach, not allowed to ride on a beach.
So, this thread is refreshing, but granted my desire was for a larger bike, the difference from your 350/450 less than 100 pounds.
I don't see it being much different than a fat guy passed out tied on deck
. Most of the weight is less than 20" high, 16" wide, just over 7' long.
I could go through what I considered for my needs but seems like storage
is the issue at least on a 28-32 footer, so far there isn't a mention of your boat, unless I missed it.
I suggest you just do it, use a boom to swing it off and on board. I'd need anchoring
points to tie it my thing down, yours may be easier to secure.
A drop down motor on the rear wheel
of you mountain bike might be a good solution, not as fast, range/time limited, but less trouble for sure. I use to pack a hell of a lot on my bicycle and wear a back pack. You can put that in a canoe, I pulled an old canoe on a dolly as a kid.
To my solutions.....
The need wasn't about just getting around to the store but to travel, leave the boat moored and take off a few days and come back.
A 450 might be big enough for the road, depends on your size, for me a 650 is highway worthy, (the transalp is touring worthy).
You-tube has some guy was going down rivers in Vietnam
with a bike on a raft!
