Man Tries to “Walk” Across Irish Sea in a Hamster Wheel, Fails

by Conner Flynn

It always amazes me how humans will do so many silly stunts. I’m not sure if that makes us stupid or awesome, but it’s always entertaining. Chris Todd made a homemade floating hamster wheel boat so that he could “walk” across the Irish Sea.

It’s more or less a simple pontoon boat that’s powered by walking in the wheel. The idea was to walk all 66-miles across the Irish Sea from Wales to the East coast of Ireland. Sadly, he had to stop around half way because of a faulty rudder and bad weather.

He was pulled to safety by a support boat, but the watercraft, called “Tredalo,” ended up at the bottom of the Irish Sea where the fish now have a new wheel to play with.
