    A little low to the ground for some Alaska trails, but a cool option.

    Default Off topic kinda !

    OK this may or not be an ATV.. you decide....
    Years ago a fellow made some serious dough in the fishing business in bristol bay and made a boat ,, a 32 footer, that had wheels on it and a drive system..
    when he wanted out of the water, he drove it up the gravel shore and up to his parking spot in Egegik... Many of you that have been their may remember seeing that boat...
    imagine a 32 ft commercial fishing boat with wheels.????
    so maybe that would fit Sayaks trailer idea ??

    Boy he pissed off the shallow draft set since he could drive off of sand bars. I think they ruled that if he was aground on a bar he was a set netter, not a drifter.

    Default At the sportsman's show

    They had this white aluminum boat that had "legs". It had three atv wheels that lowered down. It was, get this, $100,000!!!!

    Back to the OP, I don't know, it's wide, low, and mud and brush would stop it like a discussion about adhering to the Constitution in this congress!

    There is a faster way off the mountain, might hurt a little though.
