You wouldn't have thought that a boat could change direction or go round corners anywhere near as fast as those boats can, incredible  :shades:

I had a 19' JR custom race boat that I restored and sold. it had a ford 460 and a Berkly jet drive, top speed of 92mph and could literally turn on a dime at any speed. however too fast and the boat would of course flip, but easily done at 30mph  ;D

Whilst on the topic of boats, I Just Gotta' Git One of These.




Tell me Syber, do these boats come complete with the two rear embellishments as standard ?.  :P
It WILL be fine !...

DaveMorton

Not for me, thanks. There's really no place to fish from, and nowhere to attach a trolling motor. :P

See your point Dave, I've got to say that I hadn't thought of that. Maybe when I wish to buy a boat, I should consult you first. Many thanks for the helpful tip, you may just have saved me a tonne of money.  :thumbsup:

I got to say, there is a nice back end on that boat, or is it called stern or maybe even aft, I don't know but its :bounce:

it does not come standard or within any manufactures or dealer package. I'm sure if you had that boat, you would have no problem getting them as free additions.

here is a great ocean fishing boat  :D


and here is great fresh water fishing boat  :D





Diesel

Just as well they are free Syber, having taken another look at that vid, it would appear they fall off.  :scratch-head:

maybe a railing is in order, or a grab handle. I could install it for you at no charge :)

Diesel

How about one of these for your little trips around the dessert Dave.  :thumbsup:

Not sure about it being "The first street Legal" flying care.

WHat about the Taylor Aerocar, first flew in 1949 and there are still flying examples:

Also I LOVE the Lotus concept on this page too  :thumbsup:

DD, please don't take this the wrong way, but to me, that entire site screams "HOAX". Of course, I may be wrong, and I'm actually hoping that's the case, but...

But is is really cool to think about. :) A flying Lotus? Yup! that's on the list. :P

I know what you mean Dave, the Lotus concept is I think a bit of a hoax either that or it never came off.

The Aerocar is absolutely genuine though, it is what's termed as a "roadable aircraft" and has been with us since 1949, there is I believe one flying example still out there and a number in museums

Yeah, I understand exactly what you mean. It's the thought that just six fixings hold the whole lot together, could be a bit of a lark if any one of those gave way.  :(

Besides, why not use a Smart Roadster which is even lighter and faster ?.  :scratch-head:
