Paddle Your Own Canu-boat

canoe conversion

Be the boss of the lake as you scatter and terrorise other canoes with their flimsy canvas sides and puny wooden strut interiors.

Never worry about getting wet either as you row away, snugly ensconced in your water tight conning tower, with a periscopic view of the world.

Clear floating obstructions out of your way with your mini torpedoes, or blast overhanging branches with your powerful, remote controlled deckgun.

Illustration of prototype in link.

I like the idea. It reminds me of this. http://www.dutchsub...first_submarine.htm

       Ummm. Friggin' awsome.

       Nice drawing, but it doesn't feel right, somehow. I'm not sure how to make my point without seeming rude. But in this case, I get the feeling that I'm reading a pointer towards a clever and amusing cartoon on someone's site, rather than reading an idea and then being referred to an illustration.   

       I guess I'm saying that I would have liked the idea to be in the writing more than in the illustration.

       I thought the idea needed an illustration to convey the iconic impact that would otherwise not have been apparent with a written description alone. Visual imagery is important to me.

       Neat concept and illustration [+], but the angle of the oar looks a bit steep - might be easier to row if it enters at the base of the conning tower?

       //to convey the iconic impact that would otherwise not have been apparent with a written description alone.// I agree. But my point was that the text on the HB was more of a pointer towards a illustration than an idea which was clarified by an illustration. Keep the illustration but make the text more descriptive. Anyway.

       Row row row uboat fiercely 'cross the lake. Chasing all the other punts, then pass out from the gas.
