Nobody goes along just for the ride in a barrel--boat everybody walks and has a barrel of fun

The easiest way to describe the barrel-boat is to say that it s like a paddle-wheel steamboat without the steamboat. And, if you re looking for a new water sport that demands teamwork and coordination, yet provides plenty of excitement for the whole gang, you ll agree that your next boating project should be a barrel-boat. The crew members (any number from one to seven have operated the barrel) maneuver by shifting their weight. To turn right,the crew shifts to the right and the boat heels slightly, and turns. With practice and everybody working together, the barrel can be turned in a 50-ft. circle.
