Did this video help you?

Nomad Ryder: Great vid. Too bad about the phone. I'm designing something similar, but different, using a twisted chain drive, tho.

Victrola Fix: Awesome boat, I like the ducks on the front too!

ronaldhotboy: Freakin awesome!

J Dufour: Did you fill the pipe with anything or just leave it full of air?

synthesizer301: kut zooi

DrZeeebra: the duck-bow is the most important design feature. Well Done!

VancouverCanucksRock: What's this built for? A 60 lb child?

Paulo Daytenko: cara isso é ótimo

LilTigerette K: Pretty cool.. but why not go ahead and finish deck it--so you have more room on it.... but sweet.. i like.

gosexman: I hope to answer some of your questions. It's 8" PVC pipe by ten feet long. It easily carried my weight at 160 lbs. On the test drive a pedal broke off and I limped back to the dock. I dropped my cell phone in the water when I launched the boat and subsequently had a fight with them camera man (wife) over the lost phone. (She doesn't understand the concept of "it's insured"). So there is no video! The boat went into storage while I built my next boat, a twenty foot center console with inboard diesel. Watch the videos of" Building Rescue Minor" on the gosexman channel. Sorry I don't have more pictures of the drive mechanism. It's home made with gears and chain. The model airplane propeller is the proper choice for such low RPMs. Boat propellers are designed for thousands of RPMs. I hope to relaunch this summer 2014. I must redesign the chair. The angle is wrong for incumbent pedaling. I may add a sail or a kite for fun.

chrishuss211: Do you happen to have video of it in the water?

joecugo: Wrong propeller, ducks look a little fruity but other than that its ok

Alex Paulsen: A word of advice, you want some means of draining that PVC pipe... Although it may be 100% sealed, PVC is NOT 100% water proof, and it's easier to get some in there than it is to get some out..

adjumakaru: love that beat

gastank43: would it be considered evil and a sind by the christian community to give this boat to a assosiation for people in wheel chairs?

robert back: I don't know if you answered the other guy but,. Can you please give more detailed info on the drivetrain gearing (sizes and where you got it). Im doing a similar project and have been looking at the same gearing and propeller setup. Thank you

z1ny: I hope your boat is better than your video. 2 mins of the steering mechanism, yes we got it, what about the drive system? And is it flexible, or do you run aground?

skippy10776: is that prop big enough???

mindfreak001009: hi there..can i know where to buy the drive mechanism of you pontoon? i'm planning to have one like that for my upcoming vacation in Philippines pls help me find one thanks..nice project indeed!

Breck Millard: 1:01 (takes off flying)

Laura Bonagura: Floats great! Pedal broke off during sea trial. Building another boat now so this one will have to wait. See that video on the gosexman channel. It is called Rescue Minor.

lunatic catamaran: genius

ricglos: will not float with a 200 pound fat mama in a wheelchair,, Can you not see the buoyancy principle? ALL THAT HARD WORK ,and you have to call EMS for a rescue. Drink somemore of that beer, and have a rethink, good vid though.

Ben Gibson: Can you please give more detailed info on the drivetrain gearing (sizes and where you got it). Im doing a similar project and have been looking at the same gearing and propeller setup. Thank you

Carl Zorro: where about you bought the pvc with that diameter, 20'' or so?

Billy Heddins: Yeh, that's quite a project you've finished!! I like it!! the only thing I see that should be changed is the way the rudders work. I'm sure you went to great extremes making them move so easily that you can't even feel it.....BUT, it needs to hold wherever you put it. If you want to turn left, go straight, or whatever, you want the boat to steer itself. That's the key, that it steers itself. You just make adjustments to the direction! Great Job man!! You should answer some questions below!!!

30CalCoreLokt: I was kinda disapointed with the back of the PVC pipe wasnt the tails of the ducks lol GREAT BUILD!

mighty macca: love the seat....lol

AAAAAAACCCCCCCEEEEE: what size pvc is that?

Thijs18588: make a clip when you take it for a test drive?

gastank43: cause it's pedal powered and in case you haven't noticed people in wheelchairs usually got sort of a problem with anything where their feet would cause the propulsion.

badactor100: What type of foam is it?

tupsumato: I'd rather get a small propeller with better thrust characteristics. A large propeller would be too heavy for pedaling.

adrian lumakang: can i but6 that thing im in a phillipines i like your work very good

Laura Bonagura: @AAAAAAACCCCCCCEEEEE 10"

Robb's Homemade Life: i AM IMPRESSED, YOU HAD ME AT THE DUCKS.

gary grasser: hahhaaha go on a diet,,,,,,i think with a little more thought it will work,but I'm at 150,,hell at least he's doing something,,,and thanks ric,,i will have a beer ,,have a good one bud,,

SittingMoose Shaman: ...gives me idea! ...tho' i'll never be able to do it...take a relatively larger tube heat it in key areas till slightly soft...squoosh to desired forms of a kyak...cut-out where needed...fill with foam fore & aft & between rower and cargo-stows...form-up fore & aft, seal & water-proof...build out-riggers similarly(if wanted)...paint & away ya go...PVC is the 'jeep' of home-building material...

Victor Flores: Good work, put a sail and you will go fast.

DIEGAN100: Nice Boat. ¿ PLANS?

thewildthings101: How much do you think it cost you to build?

SittingMoose Shaman: ...no...why?

wtfchanneltomake: dead angle grinder parts works...

Tay Teck Bun: nice song.. what song is this? nice boat too

nialpmatk04: would you happen to have pics of how you put together your drive system?

qayaqbuilder: I imagine that it would sit loud in the water because of the weight of the PVC, even if it is hollow. Also the small propellers can't afford optimum propulsion. I'd suggest wider blades.

fcozz: Hey you own us the video test in the water.!!!! by the way looks nice, hope it works

checo1er: where did you get the metal brackets

LSfreak84: Looks like 6" IPS
