    Talking My new boat

    I figure I can run the Kenai, Kasilof, launch out of deep creek, make a quick run out of seward and then even run the Sue and the Yentna. I found the perfect ride.

    Actually I saw this parked outside my jobsite the other day. Very interesting to say the least.

    There used to be a robin egg blue colored car just like that one back in the late 80's in Seward. Watching it drive down the boat ramp and into the harbor was a kick.

    My guess is that it is over the HP restrictions on the Kenai. Sorry Charlie.

    A very nice looking ride.

    Actually most of these are rated at 43 horsepower, so in essence it could be legal.

    Might as well get an m76 otter amphibious track vehicle. You can run to the deshka and if it gets to shallow you just drive the river bed.

    Yes it was taken by the Alaska club south on O'malley and old seward here in Anchorage. I an working on a job there and saw it. I took a look inside and it looks just like a care. Pretty neat
