I think the problem is weight. A watercraft of a size comparable to teardrop must be built much more heavily than trailer.

The extra weight is not a problem for a boat, sometimes you add ballast for stability. But for a trailer, you want to keep the weight down.

It's hard to come up with a design that can do both things well.

I think the problem is...


To me, they are kinda like the flying car concept. You won't end up with a decent airplane or car. Just something that is marginal for both. A Swiss Army knife is great if that's all you have but they really are a poor screwdriver. And nothing I'd want to skin an elk with.
