A very nicely done PVC and duct tape canoe, complete with launch video.
After months of work and having a 14′ canoe in our living room, we finally got a nice day to go and test it out at Utah Lake. No leaks, no problems at all! Works really well, we’ll have to take it out often this summer.

Looks like this is a couple of years old now (2010 I think), but still a fun overview of a Ranger Tug R-25. Filmed when the owner went to receive their new boat, the Get~Aweigh. Includes loading the boat on the trailer and hauling it out.

When you build it right, it just keeps going. A quick clip showing the oldest working Controllable Pitch Propeller -- 70 years old and still in service.
The Tug boat "Herkules" from 1939, is being maintained by Berg Propulsion at Gotenius Ship Yard Sept 2009. The propeller is unique -- it is the oldest controllable pitch propeller in service. It is the 3:rd propeller built by KaMeWa. Berg Propulsion was established 1912. http://www.bergpropulsion.com
