Okay I love to be on the water and my sister found this on the internet. I'm thinking this would be really total in a trippy little way.

It's a clear canoe/kayak.

I'm surprised something like that wouldn't be super popular already! It makes a lot of sense. I think I want one!

It totally makes sense!!! Although I dunno, sometimes i might not want to see what's under me. I have horrible scary stories from Uncle who is a guide on Georgian Bay. *shivers*

Still so cool!

Such a cool idea and it makes me want one. Would this really work that well in a regular lake though? I mean yeah in the ocean itd be pretty great, but I dont live close to any bodies of water that are crytal clear. Meh, I think I still want one, cause form a distance it probably looks like your just floating on the water..and thats rad

OMG! That alone would be freakin' awesome. It'd freak out all the German tourists we get on the lake. HA HA. It's apparently only good for calm water too, so no real canoing in it. Hee hee.

Just make sure you're not anywhere where not being seen could get you killed/capsized!
