Mirage power at Melbourne

Mack Horton in Melbourne has sent over a couple of links to videos of his remarkable two-person skiff powered by Hobie Mirage drives, Ripple, as a post-script to an earlier Rowing For Pleasure post. She is truly like a swan - elegant, graceful, fast and you can't see any of the frantic flipper-waggling below the surface. For river cruising she would be difficult to beat for exercise combined with fun. The design is by Chris Ostlind in the US, and Mack has posted pictures of the build process here.
