The GoBoat Is Functional, And That’s All That Matters

goboat

You want a watercraft that packs in the trunk of your car, works well, and lets you go fishing all by yourself without too much trouble? Look no further than the GoBoat. Weighing only 15 lbs, the boat assembles in minutes, with different parts simply snapping together. You’ll need a pump to inflate the bladder (high velocity hand pump included), and then a bit of elbow grease to drop the transom mounted trolling motor (sold separately) in once it’s set up. But no big deal. It’ll accept most types of such motors, which themselves weigh about 30 lbs and cost maybe $100. The GoBoat itself is a $199 pledge, with shipping in September 2016 if funding is successful.

The Hot Tug Hot Tub Boat Is A Mouthful To Pronounce, Seems Fun

At first glance it sure looks like your little boat is taking in water and is about to sink. The two people in the picture are just pretty darn cool about it. Then you look closer and realize that nothing of the sort is happening: they are happily soaking in a hot tub! It just happens that the tub is inside the boat. That, is the Hot Tug Hot Tub Boat (HTHTB) from the Netherlands. Containing up to 2,000L of water and propelled either by an integrated electric motor, or an outboard one, the HTHTB can fit up to 6 passengers looking to sit in water… while sitting in water. The H2O is heated through a wood stove and the contents can take around 3 hours to reach the desired temperature. No matter, since you’re likely to get one fantastic ride for your patience… and also for your money: prices range from €8,950 ($11,575USD) for a bare no-engine/no-heater hull to €16,450 ($21,260USD) for the fully equipped version.
