Re: Ok, sure, why not? Keel Walking

too fun. I will admit, I would try it.. though if I managed it on my boat, it would mean the mast would be laying flat on the water

But it will only work on the port tack. Notice that they removed the port rudder, I suspect to keep from beaning the walker. If they go to starboard and heel at all, they're out of control.
