    This is the GoBoat, a tiny boat small enough to fit in the trunk of a car. It consists of a small circular frame that an inflatable air bladder is blown up around (pump included). Slip a trolling motor (not included) through the center and you're good to go! The GoBoat is cu... / Continue →

    This is a two hour and forty minute animation depicting a real-time recreation of the sinking of the Titanic, with text annotations. The video starts with the crew spotting the iceberg, and ends with the ship breaking in half and completely submerging. It's weird in the movie... / Continue →

    This is a video demonstration of the 556-foot-long yacht transporter Super Servant 4. It can flood the rear of the ship so a bunch of smaller (but still very large) boats can be piloted inside, then pump all the water out for dry transport. I am going to buy one, then I am go... / Continue →

    This is a video from San Diego of a whale-watching boat crashing into the dock. I called the Better Business Bureau once on a whale-watching excursion company because I spent four hours on the water and never saw a whale. Not even a dolphin. Plus I got sea-sick and puked sau... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy unloading his custom boat into the water from the back of his custom truck. Together they make one badass looking vehicle. Separately they make one badass looking boat, and one awkward looking truck. Together and banging a helicopter -- now that's th... / Continue →

    Sweet tan, bro. Note: Article originally published in October 2012, but it's going around the internet again because the internet is round like earth so you can sail all the way around it and end up back in the exact same spot (tie-in: boat, sailing). This is HotTug, a hot tu... / Continue →

    This is an underwater video of a huge group of sharks swarming a boat after the fisherman threw their unwanted catch over the side. That sounds wasteful. Still, I swear I saw a scene like this in a movie once. Except it wasn't actually a movie, it was a vision in a crystal b... / Continue →

    This is a short video of an octopus that's caught by a fisherman and, when it's tossed onto the boat's deck, instantly turns white to try to hide from the humans. Unfortunately, human eyes are harder to trick than some ocean predators, and I imagine this guy ended up as somebo... / Continue →

    This is a short video of an Assassin's Creed IV glitch where your ship rises from the middle of the earth while your crew goes floating off into space. That has not happened to me. Although one time in a cutscene the character I was talking to disappeared and I was left there... / Continue →

    Clearly jealous of all of Batman's sweet rides, Spider Man decided to have a Spider Speedboat built for himself. What's he plan on doing out on the water? No clue, probably drowning. Hey Spider Man, you bojo! Those webs don't work on water -- UNLESS YOU'VE GOT POWER. That... / Continue →

    A man in China has spent his life savings building his own Noah's Ark to save him from December 21's Mayan apocalypse. No word what he's going to do when the date comes and goes and nothing happens, but hopefully he can turn that thing into a pirate ship and start looting othe... / Continue →

    Remember the story I posted last year about millionaire Johan Huibers building a full size "biblical-scale" replica of Noah's ark after dreaming his homeland of Holland flooded? Well now it's complete, and ready to set sail for safety in the event of global warming. *eying pr... / Continue →

    This is the $50,000 Barbecue Dining Boat from (who else?) Hammacher Schlemmer. What do you get for your $50,000? SPOILER: Not your money's worth. It's not even glass-bottomed for ogling mermaids! You might as well be cooking on a paddle boat. Just throw a grill on this par... / Continue →

    Because what good is being filthy rich if you can't spend it building a giant ship that's gonna wind up at the bottom of the Atlantic, Australian mining billionaire Clive Palmer plans on having a modern, luxurious replica of the ship built in China and not my backyard despite m... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a boat that looks like it's hovering in midair. It's not though, it's just an optical illusion caused by magic. And you know what else is caused by magic? "Don't even say it, GW." Boners. It's true -- Gandalf told me! Hit the jump for another exampl... / Continue →

    This is a screencap from a collection of Tweets by idiot morons who didn't know the Titanic disaster was a real event. It scares me to think of what other things these people might not know actually happened and just thought were movie plots. Like World War II for instance. ... / Continue →
