    after seeing the price of props, I think I would tilt the motor when coming on shore. Id say its one of those items that can do two things ok but not one very well by looking at the hull design. Still has the cool factor though, kinda like the amphibacar.

    Default Sea Legs in Alaska

    The mgf rep for this boat assures that it's on-land-drive-system can handle the silty shores of Cook Inlet. I have a bit of cynicism about this claim, but I'm a cynical guy sometimes....

    But hey if one of you want to drop 6 figures on this boat I'll go test it out with you provided I can bring my own rescue beacon, OK?

    Note: The 6 figure price is dated; that was for the 2012 model. Also since then they've upgraded their AWD system to make it hardier on tough terrain.

    It sure would be a fun boat to go play with. I'm not convinced I can afford that fun though.

    The set in the video is not legal - ADF&G said he couldn't have his wheels touching the sand when he laid his net or he would be considered a setnetter & that ain't allowed on a drift net permit!

    They are both cool, but they need jet inboards and flat bottoms and the wheels need to be able to handle ATV trails. Bud

    It certainly saves the cost of a trailer. If I ever win a lottery I'm going to buy one.

    Saw one of these in Homer 2 summers ago. Pretty nice set up, but I can't imagine they are cheap.
