The people who would buy this sort of thing would also probably buy dehydrated water. Scary thing is I'm sure we'll eventually see someone using one in the BWCA.

I'm wondering how one can crank and steer at the same time? Good one forestmaven!

The sails aren't a mechanical device that got the sailboat banned from the BWCAW many years back, it was the hinges on the boom.

Yup. I believe that is true. Sails are legal, sailboats are not.

What gets me is that propeller looks like it's about 5 inches in diameter yet claims it will propel a canoe at 5mph. Not likely, maybe with a 20mph tail wind.

Thanks for the clarification folks.
