    This is boat shored up and ready to have the side trailer supports removed so I can repair the hull. If you don't hear from me again, it is because I am under 2 tonnes of boat.

    That ain't even funny. Take a minute to double check all your supports.

    This cool design folding pontoon car has much more potential for further development.

    Amphicar built in the USSR by the Demidov brothers.
    The vehicle was powered by an Ural motorcycle engine.
    From 1966 till 1974 a small number of cars was made.

    My little runabout out for a spin yesterday. One of my dogs rolling in kangaroo poo having the time of his life. He loves australia because he is so free. In china he would be an afternoon snack.:D

    It's a Hartley.

    I have changed the cabin.

    The boat won't slip, there's nothing to stop it.

    My thanks to the Moderator.

    You guys don't understand just how much irritation is taken away if you just IGNORE Myark.

    I just laugh when I see all the irritated reaction to things I don't see.

    Well, it's almost December and I have the desire to go for a boat ride...
    Sadly, I have put my baby away for the cold Canadian winter. I'll have to figure out how to extend the boating season!

    Yes, that sure lessens the irritation. Kind of like "sending them to Coventry". At least in your own private cyber world.

    And now for a random photo.

    I took this random picture just now of the lovely Chinese girl next door, who we greet each other every morning and each evening.
    Now I have motor bike and not walking past the many other older women aged up to 100 years old, I will miss their laughter and waves.
    The other random picture I took 10 minutes beforehand is a oyster farmer girl.

    That's an example of a very badly researched book. The folding trailer barge on the left side of the cover isn't an New Zealand idea or invention. It's just a variation on a long existing theme . . :eek:

    See post #6574 for an example of a in 1964 published version in a bit different configuration . . :idea:

    So I'll stick to my statement, you're only a self proclaimed inventor, the book only shows you fooled the writer who didn't research the topic sufficiently . . :rolleyes:
