Dave Drimmer has created an iconic plane boat made from Howard Hughes prized Boeing B-307 which was deemed un-flable in 1969. The boat know as the Cosmic Muffin was rescued from a landfill site in Fort Lauderdale Realtor. According the website, no other watercraft, before or since, has ever been constructed from a land-based airplane.
Aesthetically the Cosmic Muffin can not claim to be the prettiest boat in the harbor but its owners have big plans for it from private charters to elementary education to nonprofit fundraising projects.
Dave Drimmer said, "we are surrounded by objects manufactured under obsolete guidelines established during the Industrial Revolution. These objects were designed to be thrown away but they must now be revisited with an eye toward reuse, recycling or recombination. The benefits of this are two-fold: less consumption of natural resources during the manufacturing of something new, and less garbage in our landfills."
