it's for playing Jesus, Tom, in case you've ever wondered what walking on water would be like. In the tropics, though, it's limited to short-term fun . . . unless you really need to simulate your last sauna experience.

Re: Nautical Oddities

Looks like a fish farm cage. You go out a couple miles off shore lower the cage and anchor it. Then put fingerlings in the cage, feed them from time to time then go back after they get big and harvest them.
Huh? What do you think?

My guess is the motorcycle show in a ball routine. Maybe belongs in the making money while cruising thread?

Re: Nautical Oddities

Yep, it's a water walker.

I have solved by boating needs. I'll put a camper on my F-150 and coat the bottom with flex-steel! I figure a 25 hp OB attached to the trailer hitch should do it!

Top Gear already did that. There's probably a YouTube vid.

Re: Nautical Oddities

There is a commercial on TV for flex steel running an F-150 in the water, no camper on it, but hey, what the heck, I can always lash on a few inner tubes for reserve boyancy!

If it were metal, as it looks, it would be very expensive. FG not too bad. Docking in foul weather would be a challenge.

Re: Nautical Oddities

Up side down catamaran. How's your EGO?


The EGO semi-submersible boat is a vehicle designed and manufactured in South Korea by a company called Raonhaje. Must be fun trying to dock single handed.
