More Toys For Jack
You can check out all of the aquatic action going on beneath you with this unique hybrid canoe-kayak ($1,460). Its transparent hull â€” which is made of the same material as the cockpit canopies of fighter jets â€” lets you and a mate enjoy the underwater sights. The canoe has a lightweight anodized aluminum frame for easy transportation, and comes with two double-headed paddles, a water bailer and two flotation devices.
If you just can’t get enough of Bond-esque toys, then you should be all over this one. The Two Person 60 MPH Hovercraft from Hammacher Schlemmer ($14,000) features a 60-horsepower, two-cylinder gasoline engine and a 12-Volt battery to keep things running, along with an electric starter, 16″ windshield, six gallon fuel tank, and two aluminum skid rails on the bottom hull. While it requires registration as a boat, the ‘craft can go long distances on ice, water, sand, mud, snow, and short grass, and shorter distances on asphalt or concrete. We really can’t even begin to imagine how fun this thing would be.
