Laser? RS Aero? Melges 14? Finn???? Foiling Moth?????? 

Too many choices.

Sailing is too complicated.

What I really need is a Quadrofoil.

The blurb says...

Quadrofoil is an electric hydrofoiling personal watercraft (PWC), which provides the most economically efficient and completely environmentally friendly mode of recreational marine transportation. Due to hydrofoiling and patented steering technolog, riding feels like flying onwater and provides an entirely new and thrilling water experience.
The watercraft operates quietly and doesn’t produce any waves or emissions, which makes it suitable for lakes, rivers, seas as well as marine protected areas, where most motor boats and personal watercrafts are prohibited. It has a top speed up to 40 km/h (21 knots) and a range of up to 100 km (54 nautical miles) and can be fully charged in under 2 hours.

I need one.

Yes, Tillerman. The first person I thought of was you. It's so you

But can you poop on it? I think I'll go to bed now.

How do you get in it?

Bruce Taylor said...

Can you load it onto a trailer or car roof racks by yourself? That leaves only two of your choices.

I'm imagining someone driving it at 21 knots on a day where there's a little swell. It would be just like that Moth sailing video you shared with us but more painful to the "sailors". It's about as cool as a jetski.

R1 - it's way cooler than a jet ski. It's electric. And quiet. And environmentally friendly.

Bruce - I have no idea how I would get this into the water. I imagine I would ask the butler to do it.

Chris - that's a good question. I imagine the butler would know.

Baydog - I don't see any pooping arrangements. That's a good thing in my book. The butler hates dealing with all the hassle of pumping out etc. that you have to deal with on poopable boats. By the way, my 6-year-old grandson has discovered that sailing ships sometimes have "poop decks" and he thinks it's hilarious.

Do I need a bleach-blond with Tatoos to drive one?

I think she's one of the optional extras. Check out the order form to be sure.
