Melvin Colvin: How did you attach the wood boards to the PCV pipes? It looks like you bolted them down. I wanted to see if it is air tight, so it will give me some idea on how to attach a floor to the pontoons.
Dwarfvader9000: What did you seal off the pipes with?
I'm Simon: Excellent! By far the most professional build I have seen on YouTube...
Looncan: when the rudder breaks simple DIE!
ronaldhotboy: Freakin awesome!
VancouverCanucksRock: What's this built for? A 60 lb child?
synthesizer301: kut zooi
DrZeeebra: the duck-bow is the most important design feature. Well Done!
J Dufour: Did you fill the pipe with anything or just leave it full of air?
Victrola Fix: Awesome boat, I like the ducks on the front too!
LilTigerette K: Pretty cool.. but why not go ahead and finish deck it--so you have more room on it.... but sweet.. i like.
Paulo Daytenko: cara isso é ótimo
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.
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..
chrishuss211: Do you happen to have video of it in the water?
nialpmatk04: would you happen to have pics of how you put together your drive system?
