mykengel is on a distinguished road
Saw this on slashdot.org this morning.Looks interesting but with only 5 knot max not very practical, at least not yet. I also have to wonder how it will handle BIG waves.Kinda looks like another Tin Can, but as with that, time will tell.He does seem to have made some other improbable looking things work.

This is at least the third thread on the Wave Runner... it is damn ugly.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
