That looks great not sure how practical in the Solent chop or the speed limit on lake windermere!

Very careful throttle control when turning on the water those wing tips looked close to the water surface.

Still i might get one for Christmas as a stocking filler

I was on Warsash slip earlier this year when someone turned up in their Sealegs. Caused quite a stir among the Sunday lunchtime drinkers outside the Rising Sun and they stood open-mouthed as it drove straight down the slip into the river. I suspect the Icon A5 would have some of them considering whether they'd had one pint too many as its wings unfolded and it slid into the Hamble!

Has apparently designed to be very forgiving. Watch the spin resistance and stall testing videos. Very impressive!

PS> No, I don't have any interest in the company behind it - nor the $139,000 needed to buy one!

Want one
Imagine the video you could shoot from that, and mooring up outside the Folly would be quite a sight
