Snoopy's Windmill Boat


Play the Windmill Boat video to see Snoopy's first attempt to sail a windmill-powered boat ! The video shows the top-heavy boat adopting an inverted position, the rescue, and then a successful trip around the lake, using the same simple autopilot.

The picture on the right was taken on 16th March 2013, when the little boat joined Snoopy Sloop 9 on 24/7 duty - by accident: the twin brothers say "hello" as they repeatedly try to bump into each other.

Two pictures from the video are below ...
