I know the couple who built it. Ugo is a certified genius and might be on to something...

To date, that's the largest tube that Bill Wing has ever made...

Never saw it, despite living less than 20 miles from El Cerrito (which is directly across the SF Bay from SF.)

I have seen pics and such posted on bunch of other forums and such, though.

I'm planning on taking my dog out for her maiden voyage sometime this weekend; maybe we'll run up that way and see what there is to see.
