Water Walkers at Big Bass Lake


How about a leisurely stroll on the surface of Big Bass Lake today?  Well, these pontoon like stork feet will allow you to do just that!  I would recommend a day, though, after Labor Day or before Memorial Day when speedboat wakes wouldn’t be able to make you fall.  And what a great form of exercise this is!  I must recommend it to Ed Hawks.  I might even get Sara Jacobs  a set?

This  invention makes it possible for a person to walk on water at a near normal gait without using any additional accessory.  The user gets into the pontoons on dry land, steps into the water and simply keeps going forward after losing contact with solid ground. Bindings are not necessary.  Slow current, small waves, mild wind and underwater obstacles offer little problem and walking through thin ice is quite easy. The user is changing direction by shifting his weight and changing the direction of his feet and legs.

When going back to land the water walker just walks towards shore and gradually steps out of the water with his feet still inside the pontoons.  Using this invention people may navigate on water in a manner substantially similar to the way they do on dry land, but not as easily and swiftly: Snow shoeing is a good analogy.

And, I thought that I had seen everything when I saw an elephant fly.  At least in a Dumbo movie!
