"What do you think of this?"
Social media users were divided in their opinions after watching the video of the zip boat. While some think it is beautiful, others believe it is ugly.

"This is a cool design."
Rashad Meskienyar commented:
"Honestly and this is my opinion. It’s ridiculous. Why? Looks like a zipper. Very ugly."
Jamie Wright reacted:
"Yes it's beautiful. There is the saying open water and we are over 95% water. The waves are otherwise somewhat featureless but have great symmetry like snow."

Man gives life to non-living objects with amazing artworks, photos go viral, many say they look so real
"I appreciate the concept, but the reality is a really rather pointless, soon to be forgotten attempt at aquatic art that will undoubtedly languish in a boat yard for the next 2 decades, quickly forgotten. Someone had way too much spare cash, at least the boatbuilders earned a buck."
