We saw this car headed down 28A and wondered if he was going to take it out in Alton Bay. Kinda surprised to see it as the wind was up just a bit and these aren't known for their seaworthiness. A friend and I had considered getting one 'just for kicks' but the prices they command(ed) are rather high !

It can't be too bad, these have been seen in New York City Harbor!



Before I joined the US Navy, I turned wrenches at a private business.



One of my "victims" was an Amphicar. I was told by the owner not to put too much grease into the tie-rod rubber fittings. Y'know those fitting blow up like a balloon!
