Adapted motorboat

Customized boat with built-in ramp and joystick steering - suitable for electric wheelchair users

The user bought a Finnish aluminum boat and modified it with the help of a friend:
- To avoid too sharp of an angle for the ramp, the floor at the bow was lowered (the slope of the ramp is a little more than 1:6)
- a folding ramp was mounted, see associated tip
- cabin with doors, wind sheltered and warm
- joystick steering option, see associated tip
