Hopefully exhaust emissions will be kept firmly under control.

Will the driver have his/her lifejacket on?

Cor - there's enough old folks are lethal 'helming' a normal walking aid. I can just see this up and down the aisles in Stalham Tesco's to cries of 'starboard!'

I want one, with a well sharpened bowsprit and razor-wire bob-stay! Sail powered too, wa-hey, no speed limits, leccy powered 'scoots' will have to keep clear! Will need an onboard compressor so I can keep the crew pumped up, just kidding!!

Not very authentic...

It's got brakes, which means it will stay where you put it, no matter the wind or current...    It needs to drift when you stop lol....

Love the grapnel anchor...    An improvement could be a "heads" with pump out.

Why not have one built by Broads boatbuilders, and bolt it on to your little chariot Iain?. You would`nt need to hire a boat then.

I think a mud weight would be more appropriate than an anchor?

and maybe more fenders. You can never have too many!!!

Now if you want some more mobility, and still launch a boat, then take a look at this.

Not sure if it has been posted before, but it is at Oulton Broad.

I think perhaps , may be, we ought to warn the Care Homes of the country now!!!!!

 

Will tell you a funny story.    My old Mum 95 and has Alzheimer's Dementia , bless her, one day decided to go for a walk around the home taking her handbag.   Well unbeknown to the Staff ,  she had a bottle of Vintage Port unopened in the bag (don't ask where it came from)  and as she went for her walk, she swung this bag around knocking several residents , who were complaining about this mad women thumping them with her handbag, and then swung it at the staff.    When they opened her handbag they were shocked to see a bottle of Old Vintage Port inside.     

 

So dont be surprised if you see a version of the Zimmer we have seen being used in various Care Homes around the country.
