Not for me.

But a very clever piece of fabrication.

Oh dear!

That must have taken him/her months to build, awful looking but a great piece of engineering!! I wonder how it will get on if left in a marina for any length of time??? electrolisis eats alli prop's for a past time....i could'ent see any anodes on the hull, so we could be witness to the worlds first soluable R.I.B...............

Looks a bit like an allyduck to me.

Went out in one at southampton boat show a few uears ago - great fun. Ugly as sin but tough as old boots. Chambers are filled with plastic pop bottles so can't sink. Even better - it's got a built in trailer!!!

Plenty of ali boats around - they last years - only get electrolysis if you have different metals in contact - otherwise ali boats don't even need painting!!!
