Ok, we cut the treetrunc into slices, drill a hole in the center and stick a rod through the hole to keep everyting aligned. Al the slices are connected with muscles (the core muscles).
On top of that we give it 2 wooden legs which have the same degree of freedom as a human leg.
So all the parts between shoulders and toes are free to rotate in an organised manner now.

What would be the optimal internal action between toes and end of tree to help its forward movement in the water compared to the stiff treetrunc with stiff wooden legs?

Or in other words, what is the essence of hipdrive without bending and without kicking?
