Alaskan Amphi

Bilgemaster, thanks for the tip on the winterization page. I had
forgotten that was out there. I will be storing the car out doors in
covered storage with my boat. Now I have to get my ass in gear and
build a shop. Not sure if I had passed onto the list my delima there. I
live on a lake, Flat Lake, but do not have a road to my house. The ice
is now in and I can drive home but it makes pouring a slab for a shop
kind of a pain in the ass. I'm thinking of building the place on a
wooden foundation with a wooden floor. Anyone have any ideas? April may
be kind of early for boating. I had my skiff in the water last year on
the 5th of april but there was alot of ice moving in that lake. Enyone
ever break ice with an Amphi? Oh yea, I will need to build a boat ramp
at home. I have alot of mud and silt at the shore line and was
wondering what you could tell me about an Amphicars draft. How steep of
an incline can they handle? The mud is shollow around my place and
bottomless too. The boat prop has blown alot of it out around the dock
but the shoreline is bad. I was thinking about building a plywood
platform on the ice and letting it settal in after break up. I need
something to sort of float on the silt. I hope I explaned that right...
Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks for the help...

Sounds like you are going to have a fun time trying to build your
ramp. I'm not sure what grade our cars will take but we have come
out in some really rugged places. Mud doesn't agree too well when
coming out, not that you can't get out in it, we have. A good cement
ramp is the best thing we have found. If you use gravel, pack it in
as tight as possible because your wheels will rip it out.

Re: Re: Alaskan Amphi

The mud and silt off my place is bottomless. I can push a paddle all
the way to the handle into it. I'm thinging a wide wooden ramp that
will spread the weight out would work best. I don't think cement or
gravil will stay put.
