    could have just wore the jet pack and a seatbelt to the canoe 😂. Love your creations though! KW represent!

  • Saberwulfy

    I think the problem is center of thrust, you need to pitch up your COT, any attemps for use wings will create more drag and more weight. Your are pushing water instead slide on it.

  • Vapidzero

    Am I the only who is thinking putting couple of wing at that canoe :D?

    Now, if you just had a planing hull instead of the canoe's displacement hull... Perhaps a windsurfing short board...

  • Kevin Haddock
    Kevin Haddock

    canoe hull is made for displacement which you're trying to push it past that speed. You needed a planning hull like a skiff. Also maybe try directing the exhaust into a "Y" pipe under the boat so it hits a stream of water and accelerates it out the back

    You guys are very intellient people, its shocking to me, that you dont understand center of gravity or weight and balance. In other words, you just needed to sit more forward in the canoe.

    huge drag, very inefficient design. To get maximum speed, use a hydrofoil. please.

    Simple solution... put someone in front of canoe

  • Tom Miano
    Tom Miano

    Why didn't they put an extra 100lbs in the bow? It would have kept the nose down.

    • Tom Miano
      Tom Miano

      @Mark Downe ok, let's look at that possibility. A regular canoe can carry 2 adult people, let's say ones a man that can weigh 190 lbs, and a woman that weighs 110 lbs, that's 300 lbs. Plus equipment and supplies let's call it 500 lbs MAX. I think that canoe could definitely carry an extra 100 lbs in the bow with out it sinking. Those jets can be fun!

    • Mark Downe
      Mark Downe

      i was thinking the same like, why not just use some ballast in the bow(unless adding it would make the whole thing overweight)

    Needs some small upward angled planes at the rear sides so that as the canoe moves forward the rear is prevented from pushing down. It also needs a rudder at the stern for direction control.

    they needed weight in the front to balance the conuout

  • Ulmaramlu

    why not just put the fuel tank in the front? help weight it down for a whil?

  • Kye

    the metal pieces on the front block the intake you should try moving them forward a little.

    Guess you need a wider butt to be able to efficiently hydroplane... Due to your speed, pressure builds underneath and your bow is raised as a result. With a hull shaped for hydroplaning you'd be lifted higher on the water and the bow comes back down a bit, reducing drag. However, this shape builds up no pressure at the back, meaning your back won't come out of the water no matter your speed and angle so you're unable to efficiently hydroplane. Try the hull of a sailing dinghy like a "Laser Vago", and you'll see much better results


    Put the hets on the kayak

    I figure it might be able to go faster if the jet used on the surf board was used though 2 of them would do better but by placing the jet in the middle of the craft at the stern could increase stability and allow for steering might even allow them to get more speed by getting more efficiency from the thrust of the engine and reduce the noise made by the craft.

    I'm sure a million people have said it already the simplest solution is put a battery or that big rock in the front of the kayak and/or make a longer handle and sit a a couple feet forward.

    Pencils actually contain graphite. However, if you can melt it, it means that it actually is lead and it means it's toxic and you should properly dispose while not contaminating nature in the proces.

    Maybe just put some weight in the front of the boat, or move the man a little bit further and extend controlls, maybe just something like stearing for RC cars.
