    My concerns are:
    The effects of immersion on the wheel bearings and motor.
    Roll-stability in the water.
    Can the propeller / steering operate without the motor? – i.e. can the propeller & steering be achieved with pedal power alone.

    I’m not a fan of the out-rigger wheels, great for stability on land, but hard to see at night and would be potentially a problem on the road.

    I do like the idea of an amphibious velomobile, but I feel fairly certain this isn’t quite there.
