    Hi Rick

    I know what you mean about losing patience and why I have kicked back and focused on time value we have on this planet, but after a long breather I also lose patience of not finishing of the amphibious projects started.

    More patience is $$$$$

    Over the holidays I was looking at a magazine from about 50 years ago. Popular Mechanics/Science, Mechanics Illustrated etc

    Had an aluminum trailer/barge that you towed to the water-then drove the vehicle onto it, and used either an outboard or the drive wheels to move about.

    So not much new under the sun.



    :rolleyes:


    Where is the evidence of your say so ?
    Its like saying cars are invented 120 years ago "So not much new under the sun."
    If you Google popular mechanics you can find the complete history of any such evidence.

    Attached are a couple of my early prototypes to help you compare.

    If I cared...I'd spend a few minutes finding it.
    And thinking on it now,I believe he started work on it in the mid 1950's.

    How 'bout you prove you are the first to invent and build a towable barge on which to load an RV or car?

    TE

    BTW there's a little button on the right called "Quote", it's easy to learn how to use.

    Why, besides defending myself against bullies as shown below when West Van Han when stalking me on behalf of watch keeper and swabby who where actually the same person degrading me.

    Its been a while now and wonder when West Van Han would start to stalk me again.

    Don't think he claimed he did. He made barges folding with removable wheels and other improvements AFAICT. Not many people invented the fist trimaran or powerboat hull either. It's all based on something.

    Sometimes.When I see a Model T driving on the road it makes wonder what the point of it all is. The Model T was so simple and easy to fix. I know a Ford engineer could go on for hours how the new Expedition has better traction control and everything else...

    P.S. is there an easy way to search the old popular mechanics and popular science plans? Never read Mechanics Illustrated...

    Whenever someone dares suggest there is a simpler option than a myark or something came first, you want to wrestle him into the mat.
    Or you post 100 times why everyone has to become vegan and how many great body builders were vegan...

    Popular Mechanics has been around since 1902 and can be found on google if search hard enough with correct words for what you are looking for.
    Its my favourite read.
    Talking about cars I have a 100cc Honda motor bike I use in Thailand that runs on very little gas and never maintain it for some years now, just keeps going and going so modern motoring you can not compare to the early 1900, including cars.

    Sounds like a case of sour grapes, I knew your remarks are related to my vegetarian views.

    please keep this post to sea-worthy amphibious craft? and state any anti vegetarian views to our oceans are under attack if you want detail explanations on why vegetarian can help reverse climate change.

    Thank you

    Hey GG,actually he implied that he did,just look at his comment.

    As for myark,what's with the conspiracy theory with swabby and watchkeeper?
    I pointed out a discrepancy once a couple years ago and he posted many multiple times in just a few minutes.
    If he takes it out on me instead of someone else in real life-that's fine with me.

    All one needs to do is look at Rick grey's amphibian build,myark attacked him so much-for zero reason- the mod had to delete the post.

    As for being cheap and nasty- NotMyark-all I did was post a FACT that you can't handle.

    Oh and GG in google you can search for web,pix,etc and under "more" you'll find books. So just type in Pop mechanics and hit "books",you can search via the year.
    All one needs to do is look,myark has 3 times the posts as you, yet 1/3 the rep points...so you are 9 times more helpful.

    Excuses excuses

    If you look at Rick post he has invited me personally as a friend which I have accepted, so dream on also at that time I was repeat attacked by a troll degrading me as you have done in the past.
    Stop stalking me
