Hello Fella's I got an idea about making a huge pop pop boat moter and fitting it to a john boat Using a length of 2.5"-3" dia. of copper piping and making a coil and 2 intake and exhaust tubes finding the water line at max wieght of the boat and fixing the pipe to hit the middle of the watter line and using an old 110 watt electric cooking stove heating elements straightend and wrapped around the coil end and plugged in we could power a small boat to a few mph nothing to ski on definatly but would maybe be a good sight seeing boat engine you could use a reostat to regulate your heat and run the engine off a power converter hooked to a deep cycle marine battery or couple of them if it's requierd or maybe even using a solor panel on a canopy to run it watch ya'll think?

       Huh? Can you say "run-on sentence"? Would you like to buy some punctuation? I've read it twice and still don't know what you are talking about.

       I had one, but the wheels fell off.

       This idea would probably actually work. Put-put boats are baked on toy scales (approx 4")[see link], so I see no reason why scaling the concept up wouldn't work.

       I'll wait for the translation.

       Sorry about the no punctuation thing. here we go again, but this time with punctuation, (breath Tsuka, breath) Hello Fella's I got an idea about making a huge pop pop boat moter and fitting it to a john boat. Using a length of 2.5"-3" dia. copper piping, making a coil and 2 intake and exhaust tubes. Then finding the water line at max wieght of the boat and fixing the pipe to hit the middle of the water line. Next using an old 110 watt electric cooking stove heating elements, straightend and wrapped around the coil, plugged in we could power a small boat to a few mph. Nothing to ski on definatly, but would maybe make a good sight seeing boat. Another idea would be to use a couple of gas grill burners. and a grill tank. Or maybe even using a solor panel on a canopy to run the heating elements. watch ya'll think?

       Wrong category.   

       This time, with spell-checking, some actual sentences, and feeling.
