This boat is designed to remain stable and
upright in the event of sea storms and
other inclement sailing conditions. It also
the outside is shaped somewhat like the
offspring of a bullet and a juicer. There are
multiple windows, not unlike the pilot's
view from inside
a TIE fighter. At the back
there are jet propulsion systems every 60°.
On the side, the hatch closes flush with
the body. to recap, like a subway train
with radial symettry, but waterproof and
Inside is a seating chamber attatched to an
axle that goes straight through the middle
of the boat, anchored securly on both
ends. The seating chamber is counter
balanced so that no matter the position of
the outer shell, it remains upright by
turning on the central axle. There is also a
compact air compression system that
allows the craft to submerge
approxiamately 20 ft, located around the
side of the outer shell.
for surface navigation, jets that are
underwater are selected by computer
sensors, and operated by radio control
from the steering seat, because otherwise
the wires would tangle. underwater, all
jets may be used simultaneously.

|I feel that some form of anno is needed here, however I know nothing of boats except they can float and sink.Not even a duck can stay submerged as long as a sunken boat.
|maybe if you tied a duck to a sizeable
brick you wouldn't have this problem.
|That would just be an unfair advantage for the brick.
|The subtitle says shock-resistant. What makes the design shock-resistant? Is it built from some exotic dielectric? Or has it had an extremely liberal education?
I'm imaging a giant Phillipe Stark lemon-squeezer with propellors.
|my bad, I realize that it's not shock
resistant at all. it's unable to capsize.
hold on. I guess it sort of... maybe..
could look like that.
|Now I'm more confused - what is it not surrendering to?
|capitulate also means overturn,
although I think it's kinda archaic
