And they made that movie off Cape Hatteras in 18' seas! Can you believe it!? It goes off-road too! The props do double duty in rough turf to get 'er goin' and provide extra traction in snow up to 8' deep. One question: where do they stow the lifejackets?

Think how many stinkpotters that will hold. Bet they run their generator all night while dragging their crappy anchor.

Getting up on deck to set the anchor might be interesting. There must be a stepladder in one of the closets so that you can go up through the sunroof/hatch. Didn't notice any lifelines, though, so be sure to wear your boat shoes.

Does that qualify for the Interesting Boat Thread?
I've been saying for years that sailboats should have slide-outs. Imagine a narrow beam fast sailing machine, with an 18ft beam once you're at anchor. :)

Think about all the anchoring headaches & decisions that would be a thing of the past.

Just throw it in Park and party on.

But like Larry Pardey, do you still rely on the old tech of a "drum" E-brake, or have you embraced the next generation "disk" E-brake? Recent RV magazine tests have shown that disk E-brakes outperform drum brakes in challenging parking conditions such as hills.
