    They have been around for years, called FIB's: Flying Inflatable Boats.

    I have a couple of hours in a Seair training around St. Pete Beach post development. Although made in Orlando, they chose the Gulf of Mexico because of better (less) wind. One of my flying students invested in the company.

    There are other brands, I think Polaris is a popular line..

    Maybe 10 years ago crossing the Mississippi River on the bridge at Memphis TN There was a guy with one of these selling rides for $50.00. We didn't go up but wanted to.

    Yeah, the FlyBoat has been around since at least 2013. Though they usually don't operate much, if at all, in low season. Were they flying today?

    Looks like a Florida swamp buggy which a lot of my neighbors in Fart LouderDeryl FL had.

    Yep. That was my first thought too. Of course an RIB as is used here is my main transportation.. I'd love to be able to mourning up everything for it to fly too. That would be pretty cool.
