Fat Charlie -- Did you find the picture, or were you able to walk around that thing? Are there no tires on those rims?

It looks like where they went wrong is in not making the pontoons trailerable, with twin outboards on the ends of the pontoons. Then they would have a roll-on/roll-off dry dock that weighs less overall for towing purposes. People just don't think things through...

Found it on the net. What I was looking for was something I'd seen years ago on the net, a Lebaron convertible with a hull fitted to it, driving on the highway. It was really well done.
