A 1974 Silverline boat followed me home today, largely because I hooked the
trailer it was sitting on to the back of my pick’m’up. Come Thursday, the boat,
abandoned for 12 years, goes to the dump -- unless we come up with
something worthwhile to do with it.
I’m thinking Art Car.
I went to the Burning Man Art Festival last year, and loved it. At BM it is common
to drive Mutant Vehicles, which are a bit like parade floats (5 MPH max). One of
the most popular themes is a boat on wheels. So that’s old hat. How about
turning it up-side-down so the gunwale is just an inch off the ground. Then cut
out the bottom (now the top) for a passenger compartment. In there, install a
Jacuzzi type hot tub -- the kind where people sit in a circle, facing the center. No,
no water. I think.
The chassis would be anything we can make work -- golf cart, small automobile,
lawn tractor.... I have a couple of electric motors laying around.
Now YOU come up with a better idea. Sure you can. You’re one of those fun-loving
innovative non-conformists, aren’t you?!
