Outrider Boat

Inventor: Richard Klem

The wind in your hair, the sun in your eyes, the smell of salt in the air—and then you get seasick. If you love boating but hate all that bouncing around, the OutRider may be for you. Mounted on a funny-looking ski and shock absorber, the flat-bottomed boat lightly skims the surface of the water for an ultrasmooth ride. Side hulls and an aerodynamic design help keep the thing steady while you zip over waves at speeds of up to 80 m.p.h.

Availability: February 2002, for $60,000
