While we’re whiling away the summer days, here’s something to contemplate. It was a finalist in a design competition the only guideline being that it must take inspiration from the Porsche 911. It would appear that the designer must have some iceboating experience, on the other hand I’d like to know a bit more about how the runners connect to the plank, rather “planks”. Or would we call them arms. Or struts? Whatever they are, they are certain to be very aerodynamic. And how do we get on board after pushing?
Anyone have thoughts? Shall we build one for next year? Check out more photos, and the hair dryer that won the competition, here:
There’s also a very cool helmet that made it to the finals which would go well with the boat.
