    A Coracle is a bowl shaped basket with a waterproof covering, only about 12 inches deep.

    ill have to admit those are pretty darn loud. jets & top fuel dragsters are about the loudest I've ever heard...and probably heard too much of them with out protection..but they are both the sound of freedom and as such I wish to hear them daily for the rest of my life.
