This device is like a scuba diving scooter, but it is not meant to go underwater.

They were made many years ago. It's basically a tiny 2 stroke weedeater motor with a snorkel on it. The motor connects to a caged prop.

You hold onto it just below the surface and work the throttle and it will pull you through the water, just along the surface. Not very fast - couple mph at most.

Anyone seen these or know what they are called?

“Was it Mike Hunt and Sea Hunt?”

No-“Mike Hunt” is who you have paged at the airport. Wink

Lloyd Bridges was Mike Nelson in Sea Hunt. Razz

A weed eater motor? No way I am sailing under the briny powered by a weed eater motor.

I went to school with him. But he seemed to only show on days when there was a substitute teacher.

It must have been the aquascooter. The ones I saw people using were old versions. I didn’t know they still made them. I also didn’t know electric varieties had come down in price.

They looked like a lot of fun to skirt around in shallow bays.
