The Rapid Whale is a versatile watercraft that’s made to allow you to take a laid-back trip in the water. The small electric boat measuring just 6 feet long appear like a genuine toy suspended in the water. Honestly, you will see children using inflatables larger than that. Regardless of the toy-like design, Rapid Whale claims it’s absolutely a “blast to ride,” guaranteeing it will allow several hours of riding entertainment.
Created by Josh Tulberg, it is build-it-yourself kit that allows you to create a tiny one-person boat. That’s correct, you will, in fact, have to put this together by yourself, which should be amusing if you appreciate building stuff in your free time. We don’t know how much time constructing one of this stuff will require, but we imagine it will take up a full weekend. If constructing a boat seems challenging, well, it kind of is. For this task, though, Tulberg made easy the method as far as possible, relying upon the widely used “stitch and glue” procedure for boat making. Apart from, he simplified it furthermore by switching the stitching part with merging the part utilizing zip-ties alternatively, which will help quicken the build in a substantial way.
The kit comes with laser-cut marine plywood components, numerous 3D-printed plastic parts, a dense Plexiglas steering wheel, steering bearings, and several sizes of gaskets. The package is made to pair with a bunch of items you can get over-the-counter, all of which can be found from an Excel sheet on the item page.
