Giro Boat 1961 – Real or Scam?
By now you’ve probably heard about the Giro Boat and the video from 1961 (supposedly 1961) – we’ve been asking around here if there’s more evidence to this actually being more than just a fake video – before we reveal our finding of whether it’s real or scam or a clever viral marketing video by Evinrude…
Before we dive deep, take a minute and rewatch the video. Pay attention to the giro-boat, the specs they say (2o miles per hour), and other “scientific-sounding” details.
Ok so now we’re all familiar with what is the Giro Boat from 1961 pulled by those Evinrude
There are many different types of boats
There are videos waiting to be discovered all over the internet and they all seem to have a couple of main similarities to them. Many of the videos that have been seen
The big question, though, is if this boat has such a simple design, why does it not exist today? Many don’t believe that this boat is real because it is not very easy to find much information about this boat. However, just like any hidden treasure, after a bit of digging one can find some information on it.
What if, though, it wasn’t actually a gyro boat at all?
Upon further research into aircraft – it turns out that this is actually a type of plane that’s been developed quite a lot over the years.
They use the same principle of a rotating blade (or rotating wing) propelled forward by an engine rather than a boat towing it. It’s quite interesting in being an almost blend between a helicopter (rotating wing) and a more regular small airplane (which requires a landing strip to take off and land).
They still require you to go forward (unlike a helicopter which can take off straight up and down) but are rather small and compact in an airport hanger. Some people say they are actually more simple than a typical airplane – though to a layman they still seem complex like a helicopter!
