Re: If you want to change the sailboat by a motorboat....

Paulo, those old steam launches are really cool ! Thanks for posting this.

I never got the whole car as a boat thing in the second part of the video though.

Now if you want to combine some classic car elements into a cool boat, check out this new speedster from Cherubini.

We saw this at the Atlantic City Boat Show and got a chance to talk with Dave Cherubini about it. I never wanted a power boat but this would be very cool to tool around in. If I remember correctly the wheel is from a 52 Chevy.

Re: If you want to change the sailboat by a motorboat....

In college I had a friend who had a working Amphi car and it was a lousy car and even worse boat! Lots of fun, but not good at either job. Her father took it as a business expense as he was a doctor and the office was on the other side of the lake and he said it was faster to go across than around. But I don't even think there was a ramp on both sides! They still have it in there barn now.
