Transparent Canoe

Tuesday, 26 June 2007
Transparent Canoe I saw this canoe that was recently developed by Hammacher Schlemmer. It is made from a transparent polymer hull made from the same stuff as the canopy on jet fighters, which allows you to get a great view of life under the water.

$1495 will get you the boat, two kayak paddles, bilge pump and flotation bags.

I think it's a cool idea though I think that I would spend more time looking down then looking around at the personal watercraft bearing down on me. That probably won't be the case for you, just me. I had the same experience with a GPS while out on a daytrip. I spent the whole time stating at my calculated speed, I missed everything!
