The 'BoatPack' Turns a Car's Roof Box Into a Convenient Mobile Boat

Marketed as an emergency boat located on top of your car, the upside down 'BoatPack' comes in handy if there's ever a need to abandon your car --- think flood, rainstorm or tsunami -- and row, row yourself away to dry land.

What's cool about this innovation is that most large vehicles --- like SUVs, Jeeps and mini-vans -- already have racks on top of their car roof to hold a car storage box. 'BoatBox' turns that otherwise out-of-use and empty storage box into a fully functional mobile emergency row boat with seamlessly incorporated seats and paddles for two.

With a buoyant and agile construction, anyone can easily flip over the BoatBox, roll it along on its little wheels to the shore, and send it out to sea. You can even clip a motor onto the back of the boat if rowing isn't your thing. Stay safe and prepared for any possible exploring, camping or traveling mishap.
