Thanks for Michael for sending us this great project! Michael writes:
Leo Megliola, an 8th grader at Berwick Academy, converted his kayak to travel to an island 6 miles offshore, entirely by itself. He used parts and tutorials, mostly from Adafruit (including an Arduino, a GPS sensor, a relay, and a stepper motor controller). He will be exhibiting at the World Maker Faire in NYC.
