    Probably a good point to draw this older 2007 thread to a close since it seems to be creating or rehashing more animosity than creating interesting discussion that everyone can enjoy in the last page or so.

    Let’s please try and keep the forums positive and a place for interesting discussions and ideas. If you find you continually are annoyed by another member's posts, please click their username and "add to ignore list" and let’s try and keep the forums more about interesting concepts and ideas and a place that is enjoyable for everyone to read. Thanks.

    Old Amphibious Trailer Designs

    After commenting about seeing older designed amphibious trailers,I was attacked and accused of lying and being in a cabal of some sort.

    Popular Science, December 1967:
    " A Cincinnatti Engineer,John Brush,has spent a dozen years contriving a way to make his family car run on water as well as land"
    Ergo, he started work on it in 1955.

    US patent search:

    1954:

    1971:
    http://www.google.co.cr/patents/US3860982

    1965:
    http://www.google.com.na/patents/US3332388

    And there's one from 1946.....and a couple in Europe in the 1950's..and IIRC there was some sort of WW2 thing.

    If anyone cares,just google:amphibious trailer or amphibian trailer or floating trailer.
