- Jan 2, 2009Hi Dick,
Welcome to the group.
Go to <http://www.nmia.com/~vrbass/pop-pop/#payne> for information
about the use of pop-pop engines in full-sized boats. For in-between
sized boats, go to our Photos section to check out the albums, dory
pop pop By: danoyes1, Large pop-pop boats By: jeanyves_renaud and putt
putts By: darylcanada73 which indicate the possibility for using large
or multiple coil type engines to propel a dory, skiff or canoe. Don't
go too far up that infamous creek without a paddle though!
Best wishes, Frank
