Come sail away...

This is just cool.

According to You Tube, this is done by using sulfur hexafluoride. This gas is significantly denser then air, and gives the foil “ship” the look as if it’s floating on water. Apparently this gas is 5.11 times denser then the air we breathe. It’s non-toxic and if you inhale some, it has the opposite effect of helium; it makes your voice sound deeper.
