Re: O/T...People will build anything!

Re: O/T...People will build anything!

I'd hate to sink it. Wonder how much it is to insure.

I love the interior though.

The pictures of these trucks in the water look doctored.

Agreed, that amphibious truck is STUPID BUTT UGLY!

Re: O/T...People will build anything!

I wouldn't think it's too stable in the water, it's too narrow compared to the height. Should be a 6:1:0.6 Len/Wdth/Hght ratio for optimal seaworthyness. This barge is more like 5:1:1.5 L/W/H ratio. The length to width ratio is probably ok (5:1) but the height is 2.5 times what it should be.

And how about the one with the garage in back - How'd ya like to tell your insurance agent not only your million dollar camper is on the bottom of the lake but it has your 80K Benz in the back....

Otherwise, pretty cool. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Re: O/T...People will build anything!

Thank you for your post. My next mod on my zuki is to make it an "Amphib" now. With the basic design of the zuki, it shouldn't be to hard to make it float. I'll need to work on the "marine" drive though. Any thoughts or ideas are VERY welcome! [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]

Re: O/T...People will build anything!

Funny you should mention that... I was talking to a guy today that owns a monster truck, and although he said it weighs 5 ton he said it does actually float.

He said you need several guys in the tray to balance the motor and keep it level, but it does indeed float, and he has taken it for a lap around a lake!

I was pretty sceptical at first, but after thinking about it some more I think it probably would.
So to make a 1 ton suzuki float wouldn't be too hard.... maybe a set of dual 44" boggers would do it [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
