  • Short Summary

    A strange vessel is demonstrated - a motorcycle boat.

  • Description

    No title. C/U of a man in shirt and braces driving a new invention - a motorcycle boat. The "boat" is made from an old seaplane float.

    L/S of the man speeding towards the camera across a field. L/S of crowd of people sitting on a riverbank. The "Shooter" suddenly appears, launching itself off the riverbank and into the water. We see the vessel land in the river from the shore. A man and a young boy get in front of the camera and are obviously asked to move out of the way. We then see the boat landing in the water in slow motion.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 489.
