Ready My Captain's Hat: HotTug, A Hot Tub Tugboat

July 9, 2015


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 tub/tugboat hybrid with a wood-burning heater to keep the water warm and a little motor to zoom you around the lake or canal while you're getting crunk on champagne. It costs ~$25,000, but they sell cheaper models if you don't want the heater or motor. Oooh --a cold tub that doesn't go anywhere! I'm pretty sure I already have one of those in my bathroom. Also: a pulsating shower head. Sometimes I like to close my eyes and pretend I'm going through a car wash. It's the little things.

Keep going for one more shot.


Thanks to Brandon, who knows drinking in a hot tub gets you drunk hard and fast and is a great investment for the serious boozehound. The initial outlay is steep, but it'll pay for itself in a couple years.

    of course, only the dutch can actually steer while getting a rub & tug. been trying it while in the buick since my teens and state farm agrees...

    does it use the water that you are floating in or can you at least fill it with clean water opposed to nasty canal water?

  • What is the point of having a hyperlink on the word HotTug that just reloads this same story?

  • I think it's supposed to go to here...

  • Ah, The Netherlands - where this would seem perfectly normal. I'm surprised they're wearing swim suits.

    When I saw the article on the main paige I thought to myself: 'This has to be a Dutch invention.'
    Then I hovered above the link on the main page and saw the '.nl' country code and I knew I was right.
    The reason for me to think that it would be a Dutch invention is because I'm Dutch and only we can get stoned enough to think of something like this. Plus, dealing with water is kind off our thing.

    Looks like a floating toilet seat.

    This world gets more interesting the more I read Geekologie.
