• All, You may notice that the site looks a bit different. This evening I performed a major software update which improves some things and has the opposite effect on some others. The old software version will no longer be supported so it was not really a choice. One down-side is that the new release breaks most of the Add-Ins and style sheets which will have to be reinstalled (and repurchased in many cases). The biggest loss is that the feature to receive all new posts by email is no longer supported. I will likely implement another option which will let users subscribe to either a daily or weekly digest. You will notice enhanced support for attachments, ability to bookmark posts and a more mobile friendly experience. If you do discover something that is not working as it should, please let me know. I did have to switch to some new anti-spam components and am keeping fingers crossed that they are as effective as the old ones without blocking legitimate users. Keeping the balance is kind of like trying to design a car that both drives and swims! Thanks, Mike

Towing 4 wheels down

I am thinking of buying an Amphicar to tow ben=hind a motorhome.

In neutral will it tow 4 wheels down? Anyone seen or done this?

There is also a possible hitch that will let it tow 2 wheels down or
I can use a tow dolly.

This will be my dream of having a boat and car along while RVing but
I don't want to use a trailer.

Thanks, Bik

Bik,

From all accounts, you should always tow your Amphi with all 4 off
the ground. There are also some good ideas on strapping one down on
the trailer properly as well.

You wouldn't want to be wearing out parts unless your driving her.
They really weren't designed to take that punnishment.

I am sure Bilgy or Dave(s) could elaborate more.

I prefer to carry the car on a trailer, all 4 wheels up. But if I recall,
I think Hugh tows his all 4 down. Two of my amphi's came with tow bars for
towing all 4 wheels down, but as I said, I've never done it that way.
Carrying it is much easier in all ways.

As for the tool to get the prop shafts off the transmission, I forget the
exact size, but Hugh sells it his catalog.
