A clear kayak?

Could a clear (i.e., see through) kayak be made and what would it be made out of? Lexan?

I am curious as I might be interested in kinematic analyses of kayaking but the lower body must be seen.

I must be a pervert because all I can think of doing with one of those is kayaking while nude from the waist down.

That's weird. All I can think of is watching you kayak in one of those while nude from the waist down.

Looks like they're all sea kayaks. I suppose that would just add to the awesomeness - to see someone boofing a nice 30 footer in a clear sea kayak. Or getting a huge endo. There probably wouldn't be very interesting kinematics until you got a clear freestyle boat.

Leif, yeah I was thinking a play boat and looking at the transfer in angular momentum from the lower body to the upper body for the various roll techniques. Just a fun idea I am kicking around
