    (Pretty sure Staton is supplying the drive on these since I found this off a link in his pages, gearbox with NuVinci)

    How does it turn when it's on the water?

    Must be by the front wheel,which suggests it has a rather large turning circle.
    Neat though.

    Eh, if they just made some sort of membrane/solid plastic bit that filled the whole front wheel they'd be good.

    Look at the pics in the gallery on the site. At least one has an insert in the front wheel which makes a chord of it a solid surface between the spokes. I assume one turns the wheel to get that down into the water, then locks the front brake to hold it there. Turns the wheel into a rudder.
