SPIFFY but IFFY.
Those 2 little pontoons aren't supportive of that weight.
The mass weight is WAY to far forward.
I had a little 14' Sport Fisherman pontoon, with 4 people & minimum fishing gear the pontoons went from 1/4 in the water to over 1/2 in the water.

But then, that red-neck might have build a Wing-Submarine. :roll:

Yup the weight is way to far forward. There might be enough floatation in those pontoons if the weight was better distributed.

Lol. I don’t see any duct tape so I know Red Green didn’t design it. But he would likely add a few wraps of duct tape to shift the weight back. Then he would add a couple of electric kitchen mixers as extra propulsion.

Looks like a waste of a perfectly good Goldwing to me.

WASTE?
Naw, think of it as an experimental for an inboard motor. ;)
