New jet-propelled fishing boat unveiled

Meet the Mokai - a hybrid between a kayak and a boat, which is claimed to be the next big thing in environmentally-friendly fishing craft.

They're propelled by a water jet, a bit like a giant bait boat. This is powered by a 6hp inboard Honda engine which will run for eight hours.

Berkshire-based importer Waterlines claim the new 11ft craft are light enough to travel on a roof rack, but stable enough to fish from.
