    Well if they'd stop a second you could get a look at it. My first thoughts are what could you do with it? It looks like it would be too cramped to move around on. It looks like an attempt at a camper on a 'toon. I'll look at the brochure later, my bigger computer is down, hard to see with this tablet.

    I went to the site and looked at the details on the Eco Cruiser, ( http://www.ecocruiser.net/home ) and Moser is right. The video shows multiple shots of the Eco Craft speeding up and down the channel. There are however, a number of tabs on their site that you should click on to get details of the build, features, options etc. As it is presented in the home video it doesn't look finished. Maybe it's not? However the cabin, head, seating and other shots of the craft don't do much for me. I suppose if you're looking for a camper, sleep bunk, weather cabin or those features it may have more appeal. In line with crossover type craft, the current issue of PDB features a write up and details on the Floe-Craft; ( http://www.floeintl.com/floe-craft-3950/ ) another unusual floor plan deck boat / pontoon boat / cruiser / sport boat - I'm looking for a good description. This vessel seems to have more of the "Sun-dancer" Sport Cruiser quality about it and I can't wait to see the pricing on either one. Oh well - as someone once said; "you pays your money & you takes your choice". Opinions ??

    Apart from not having much room to move about, the fwd 3' appears useless as well. I do like that it has a head. Maybe it'd be good for a couple to overnight on, but so far as camping out goes, I'll stick with what I've got.

    Did you notice the size of the Floe Craft-39'. I'm going to throw out a guesstimate on it's price- above $200,000.
