Another day in Pottahawk history

In 1912 Clem Beebuddus tried to market Pottahawk. He felt that a time so good should be available to everyone, even those without boats.

He set out to bring Pottahawk to land by submerging several chosen sites under water in the hopes of creating several artificial Pottahawks.

To raise money for the project, Clem sold shares in his idea and water pumping machine, "The Pottahawkinator". It was a complete disaster and several communities are still under water to this day.

In fact only the Bre-Ex fiasco removed the Pottahawkinator from the annals of the greatest market share collapse in Canadian history.
