PowerYak by David Butler, Cotuit, Massachusetts

I am a retired engineer and inventor with seemingly too much work to get to my next Glen-L fantasy. But, awhile back I built your two-place electric kayak -- with a simple twist. "Watts Up Doc!" is operator-controlled by a tiny key-fob -- just like a video game and the kids especially excel at driving it.

You should see the shoreside spectator's expressions as a teen deftly controls and pilots the empty kayak right up onto its trailer.
