HOW or WHY does this work? Vibrating Boat propulsion 🚤🚢 PART 4 RC in the bath. This time I added a rudder and put it in the bath. It is incredibly slow but it does have forward propulsion and steering.

Maybe works something  like this ?

0:00 I thought the boat was anchored by the bath-plug for a while there.

Philosophically, it's moving because it's not staying still, ie, it's bouncing up and down, and has less resistance to motion forwards than backwards or sideways.

For a rudder to work, you have to have some water-flow past it.

Hey Oldman :) ! Did you tried moving the mass form center to say front then rear of the boat ? And note if the vibration as the same effect, does it make it move in the same direction for the same rotation of the motor for exemple ? Anyway glad to say you still enjoy the little things ;)
