you know how it is, you sit in the workshop between projects and look at all the bits on the racking.
then a weird feeling starts growing in your brain.
you take down some wood and start cutting and gluing and in a week you have this.  Grin

now it is never going near water, so it does not have to be water tight.
just a bit of fun to fill some time.

Amazing result...it look weird the engines position, maybe running slow can act as rowing?   Grin

Why keep it far from water, to make water tight the hull require so little...result could be really nice!  (and ask people to guess what kind of hydroplane is it!)

Looks like a cross between an old time free flight glider from Europe, a seaplane, and maybe an Ugly Stik? Probably no good on water unless a proper step put on it. Interesting. And you won't have any trouble figuring out which one is yours.

Bit hefty - what? Yes go on float it, or have you no suitable water? Fields near here have had some nice shallow ponds which would be ideal!
