If you could check out our campaign/video and then come here to comment that would be amazing :) here is the link

We haven't done much community building prior to the campaign monstly because of the work on the boat and just not knowing where to look. I mean does anyone here know where to look for people that like man powered boats? :P
I just know that if we had someone who knew how to outreach to people this boat could become huge. It is unique because of the fact that not only can you accelerate with your legs now you can turn very easily and almost in place if you want.

When you look at other leg powered boats they tend to have a bicycle style drive which makes it so when you want to turn you have to stop doing whatever youre doing with your body/arms.
You might with some luck find something that looks a bit like our fishtail but in the end you will realize the pros of our boat.
We made it so it focuses on spending long periods of time in the water. So wobbling was reduced so seasickness is highly reduced and you can not flip the boat unless you literaly break it in half.
Please ask any questions you have because that will mean that someone at least saw our video :) I love answering questions and but there are no questions to answer as of yet.
