More Mirage drive boating
Mack Horton in Melbourne has sent a link to a video of his double Hobie Mirage drive powered boat Strider beetling around Victoria Harbour. What I really like about this is that he is peddling round the backs of pontoons and under gangways along strips of water too narrow to row. It looks like great fun. Look out for the admiring glances of onlookers!
More videos here.
Mack built Strider at the Wooden Boat Centre, which builds boats and offers facilities for people to build their own. I wish there was a place like that in Chichester Harbour. I need it desparately.
