    Several years ago I saw a smallish boat(house boat type) that had built in axle's and hubs and wheels that rotated up 90* out of the water by electric motor and then back down for trailering. Neat setup. I can find nothing on Google about it and do not know the name of the boat. I saw it in northern California. Any and all help appreciated and what type of brakes would be on it. Thanks, Stan PS it was a manufactured boat not a custom. Wheels were not powered like SeaLegs.
    Finally got the name AQUA- TRAIL house boat built near Sacramento went out of business decasdes ago. can't find pics or and details re: wheels
