Lawn mower, meet kayak

A jet-propelled kayak races a rally truck in Iceland

jet-powered kayak

Think hand-powered boats are for sissies? Do you mock all those crunchy, neoprene-wearing outdoorsy types (like me) who smugly paddle around in their long, skinny, quiet kayaks?

Then you'll want to make friends with the dude who built this, the first engine-powered kayak. This thing apparently took two years to outfit with a stunningly environmentally unfriendly two-stroke engine. The TravelGearBlog found this video of the boat racing a British rally truck in Iceland.
