Frilled Lizard Boat
Steve Kaspar gave me an old sail he had made along the lines of a George Dyson sail as featured in his book, Baidarka. I stuck it on the sailing baidarka and it reminded me of some kind of lizard I had seen pictures of before. Went on the internet and sure enough. The resemblance is remarkable. See below.
I wonder if the lizard like the boat can only sail downwind with this particular contraption. I actually haven't tried the sail yet, but I am sure that the lizard has tried his.
