So, there you are innocently driving to the local Kwik Stop in St Clair Michigan for a cold one and a pack of chokes and BAM you see this mirage of a barrel back from afar.. The closer you get, you can see that its far far more than a barrel back, its a barrel..well. A barrel everything. And who ever conceived of this went all the way. The way one should. He or she.. OK it had to be a he, a single he, cause the wife is gone by now. Anyway, He committed to the barrel thing, and god bless him for it.
Now, you may be wondering, what in the heck can I do in this? Well, today is all about that. Like, now Niagara Falls is a boating option! Now lets make this clear, this is not a story about boat design, good or bad, but how can we help this boat sell? Being an ad guy, stuff like this is the most fun and challenging. It’s not main stream and clearly is unique. For example, maybe, juuuust maybe this is a pro pro prototype barrel back, you know the inspiration and then it just got refined in 1939. Or ruined depending on your POV.. Or here goes, just spit balling here. It can roll over like a Kayak? Never capsize? Hey, there are no bad ideas here. Here is one, its got a jet engine, like a missile? Maybe it’s a barrel back designed for big waves? Regardless, its clearly designed by someone that understands design, as extreme as it may be, it does make a statement. Anyway, its Saturday and 100 outside, so you have some time to ideate here, run ideas up the flag pole and see if they fly.
