Ride in but unusual

 This is the missing link of evolution of canoe to boat or boat to canoe.
 This is the way canoeing is going in Australia with a 25 hp engine.

The Quadrofoil looks like a vehicle from a James Bond action sequence. But while the world’s favorite spy seemingly has no regard for the environment while he’s blowing things up, this personal hydrofoil is powered by an eco-friendly electric motor.
Created by three Slovenian engineers in just six months, the £12,000+ Quadrofoil has a top speed of around 25mph when it lifts out of the water onto its set of four wings. The reduced drag not only lets the electric craft reach those speeds with just a 3.7kW motor, but also with a minimal amount of drain on its batteries.
On just a one hour charge, the Quadrofoil has an impressive range of up to 62 miles, which can be pushed even further thanks to a set of fold-out solar panels that let you top off the battery when you’re away from an outlet. And this is just the first generation model. The Quadrofoil’s wings are apparently strong enough to support speeds of up to 50mph, so future generations of the craft—with improved battery technology—could feel like racing a waterborne super car.

My new boat

The seats slide on the black runners to adjust the weight to get the right trim.  Power is either 30lb thrust electric outboard or 3.3hp outboard. It rows easily as well. This is a stable platform and will be used for photography on the local river, The Shoalhaven. It is 12 feet long.There is four fishing rod holders. Fully loaded it draws 300mm. There is room to sleep between the black bars when the seats are removed. Plastic boxes are tied to the black bars to hold all the gear for the trip and these rest in the top yellow hulls.
