So I walked up to the boat and saw a man inside. I knocked on the window and asked if I could come aboard. The owner, Joe Dockery, kindly invited me aboard.

The Jet Pack - A New Type of Tender

The company, which has successfully taken its prototype to 3,500 feet and—safely—­returned the craft and its test pilot back down to earth.

Too tired from a passage to lower your tender into the water, and too impatient to wait for the launch service? Just strap on your jet pack and soar over to shore. According to Martin Jetpack, we’re only a couple of years away from that being a reality...
