    funny boats

    [​IMG]
    a real version "pop-pop" boat like this model would give a breathtaking sound, mayby have the exhoust below waterline? (see patents)
    anyone knows a simpler speed engine? have a plea$ureboat and only wish i could do some pop-pop R&D ;-)

    visit the pop-pop toyboats page.

    No boats, just funny - for yipster

    Just caught up with this one.
    Pop pop boats - were a regular craze when I was a schoolboy. But to respond to your search for an even cheaper method of power:
    Cut a large 'V' notch in your stern and insert a lump of camphor...
    Beats the pop pop anyday. :D

    Here's cheap, you don't even have to modify your "stern". Sam
