Joe sent over this awesome water chopper!

Years of puttering around the workshop finally have paid off for a local inventor, who was featured in the July edition of Popular Mechanic. Jim Garlitz, who operates a pizza shop in this small unincorporated town in the western Maryland mountains, was featured for a watercraft he assembled using a 1985 red Yamaha Virago frame, a 1990 9.9-horsepower Nissan outboard motor and other “readily available materials.” He calls it a water chopper.
