Hmmmm... I'd be cautious about anything touted using an oxymoron like "Happy Wife"...<hehe>
In that pic:
How exactly would you (well, female brought along for purpose) actually paddle the thing? Wouldn't the wheel cowlings be in the way? Could oars w/locks be employed instead? Dunno. Also, in the same "happy" pic, there seems to be quite a bit of turbulence/water being lifted/left behind by the paddles/wheels?
My suspicion is that the Autocanoe serves better on the hard than afloat!
And, according to the Internet Archive Wayback Machine:
The part about "Coming soon Electric powered Autocanoe!" has been posted on their site since December 2003 approx.? Hmmmmmmm.....
No pics on the site yet (after 5-6yrs) of smiling happy clients who have built the plans?
Never mind a movie of how it performs on land, I want to see/know how it performs on water!
...and if they are still married.
with this boat you get more then a happy wife you get 10 !! for sure
