Latest Innovation for the Wind-Scooter - The Hiking Stick
Thanks to Hector, who suggested this while ringing the bell at the corner of Dartmouth and St. James across from the Boston Public Library and who happened to discover a pole nearby for me to use, the design for sailing has been improved with a spinnaker-boom or Hiking Stick to manage the sail. It’s great. The only problem is transporting it on my bike with the wind-scooter. It ought to be much longer and as a consequence really extends far beyond the rear-end of my bicycle. I might need to attach a red flag as I pass through automobile traffic.
