A self-built engine-powered canoe

This probably isn’t the most interesting video you’ve ever seen, but the idea behind it can be appreciated.

If you’ve ever been out in the middle of the water in a canoe, and your arms get tired, something like this may have come in handy.

Someone decided it would be a good idea to build a triple transferator hot-air engine that could power a canoe. The YouTube description says that the transferator engine is made from stainless steel food storage jars, and heat is supplied to the engine from the propane gas burner below the hot caps.
