Its been a half year since this was
mentioned and having learned the hard
way... I thought I'd remind all and
inform the newly amphibious hord about
Amphipoda's 9th commandment:

"Thou shalt halt thy rear wheels BEFORE
engaging thy propellers."

Reason being is the water transmission
will powder itself if the rear wheels
are spinning, even a little spin will
shear gear teeth when trying to engage
the propellers. Repairs costs can
range from a few hundred to a few
thousand dollars. The labor involved
can also be rather extensive.

Simple "rule of fin" - whenever
you reach for the propeller level,
always have your foot on the brakes!
This includes props forward or reverse.
