Looks cool! Wish I had the bandwidth to see more than just the small thumbnails.

Way cool!

Thanks for that one.
I have built myself a wee wood boat intending to make pedal powered boat for some years.
I like the way he's made the chain to turn the corner facility.

That is one of the better amphibians that I've seen. A couple of years ago I was working on plans for a HP bass boat. Here is a link to a simple twisted chain prop that I was going to build (http://www.recumbents.com/wisil/hpb/compact_drive.htm).

Here is another amphibious velomobile (http://www.treehugger.com/cars/what-happens-when-a-kayak-has-sex-with-a-velomobile.html) and there are quite as few others.

I always wondered how a jetboat setup would work instead of a prop.

But then you could not take the bike/trike with you--unless it was a much bigger inflatable, which would need a bigger trike, which would need a bigger inflat---------stop--stop!!!
