I think that idea might have some legs. You wouldn't be able to saddle the cross member due to the amount of drag, but you could stand on the cross member. Need the rope attached about a 1/4 of the way from the front. One could easily attach clips to the rear of the tube for speargun/lobster net/etc.. The wings on the front would be a little tricky.

Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?”
