Homemade Boat Glides on Stovepipe Pontoons
CAPABLE of being put together or disassembled in a few minutes, the odd-looking “glide boat” illustrated below is a new product of German invention.
The craft is entirely homemade, even to the two pontoons, fashioned out of stovepipe, that buoy it up. Ingeniously constructed out of odds and ends, it opens a new water sport to the pilot of the queer aquatic vehicle, who sits within a wooden box in the center and paddles himself about the lake or stream.
Five crosspieces, fastened across the two pontoons, insure rigidity in the water. The box is provided with two detachable wheels, so that the boat, when dismantled, can be wheeled from place to place on land.
