    Hi Sunworksco,
    Here is something that might be worth looking at.
    It could give you some ideas.
    It also has some plans.

    I would love to build a kayak with a paddling Eskimo.
    It would be great to get detailed drawings.

    Hi Stephen,

    I like the rowing boat. Would love to know more about the build.

    My daftest 'boat' is probably to duck. Based on a plastic decoy duck it features a waterjet drive, moving head, flashing eyes and 'quack' soundcard with lipsync.

    (The lipsync has been improved since the video was taken)

    My current favourite FUN BOAT is 'Theodore Too'.
    Started life as a cartoon tug in a Canadian TV series set in Hamilton harbour.
    Spawned several RC models and then - lo and behold a full scale replica!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Thought Iโ€™d start this thread off to find out what weird and wonderful boats others have seen or made.

    This was at New Brighton today.

    What unusual boats have others come across? ๐Ÿ˜Ž
