    Here is my latest design with yours truly in the "saddle". Cheap to build, run and very easy to get to and from the water. :cool:
    Goes like a bat out of hell:D

    OK, I hear you - the hat is of my beloved rugby team, the "Blue Bulls"....

    great idea.

    just 1 small question------where does the fuel tank go----or have you converted the engine to run on natural gas from the built in tank :eek:
    I suppose the size of engine depends on your personal bouyancy tank.
    Me---- I could only cope with a 2hp:p :p LOL

    Just a thought---if you had water wings on ---would you classify as a multihull!!

    Wow,

    and now you are still a bit underpowered and change the propulsion to the 90hp in the background!

    Kim,

    the gas supply is obvious in the second picture.

    Near the "Blue Balls" of course. (you remember, the Rugby team is named similar):p

    actually a "green" design and environment friendly. :cool: Your nutrition - healthy fiber rich bake beans - gets converted to clean burning gas /fuel that burns cleanly, very efficiently and nothing wasted. :D

    Thinking of adding some hydrofoil wings to the motor...

    I really feel so sorry to tell you that your design, while pretty original, is neither the simplest one nor the most eco-friendly...
