Human Powered Velomobile on Land and Sea.

This just in.

Here's a nice and fun-looking velomobile that also doubles as a boat. You've got to love the ambition, but it seems to work better on land than on sea. Being a swimmer, I'd rather park my HPV and swim to my next destination. Still, one can dream.

Things go smoothly until the rider drives it uphill -- always tough on a 'bent anyway -- and out of the water. Presumably the tires skid or get stuck. I'm not sure how I would ever use this?
