Good footage of experimental German motor boat in action on a lake.
Motor Boat. German titles read: 'Ein Motorboot in Tropfenform, das 25 Personen mit 100 Kilometer Stundengeschwindigkeit befordern kann, wurde auf der Weser versucht.' (May be incorrect as timecode covers part of titles on vhs copy.)
German experimental motorboat c 1920'S. Opens w/ 1 of crew turning crank to start the motor; while another man pushes off w/ pole; the boat has a big propeller mounted on the back; above the water. Various shots of this rather bizarre craft; shaped like an ellipse w/ pointed ends; skimming across the water; a sort of air-boat. Like a precursor to the hovercraft (?).
