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  Grin

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

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

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.

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 Smiley

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:

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. Smiley A flying Lotus? Yup! that's on the list. Tongue

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.  Sad

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