    It was a wondeful trip. My son Nikolai (aka Nick) got to ride in the
    Amphicar in his child seat. We took a long cruise up river with 3
    other cars. Very exciting since none of us had any idea where the
    boat ramp was. On Sunday morning I cam back and went for a last swim
    with Dave the Wave and Nick B from Wisconsin ... a great time. We all
    went out at a public boat ramp ... since there were three lamps we
    did a triple launch. What fun!

    It was very nice actually driving the car. Dave has done an amazing
    job on my transmission. It appears that when the previous owner
    rebuilt the transmission they left out some parts. Two summers back
    we discover it was missing its balls, noe we discover that the rods
    were gone too. I'm sure that Amphipoda would have reminded me that
    these things generally travel in packs (two balls to the rod is the
    US standard<G>). The carb is working well and I actually got the car
    up to 70 at one point. It drives nice at 65.


    PS My apology for not getting this out sooner. I was cleaning up
    stuff and decided to go into Yahoo to write something from the
    office. I did not realize that we were both a club (Amphicar) and a
    Group (Amphicar-Lovers). The "Club" is a little dead as this is the
    group list ... mea culpa.
