Re: First amphibious RV bus?
I wouldn't worry to much about the naysayers. Back in the 'sixtys, VW folks in England and the US used to make water bugs. There were two types they made. The best model was the dry engine where they would weld in plates and make the engine compartment reasonably dry. The second method was the wet engine where they would allow the engine to run while the engine was half submerged. On the wet engine they would strip off all the fan shroud. They had two types of propulsion plus a fanciful method. They would stick props right on the crankshaft alternator pulley or use paddle wheels attached to the rear wheels. The American buggers would stick 70 hp evinrudes on the back bumper. In England the bug people would actually have races. I have wanted to make one since that time long ago. Anyway talk is cheap so you have come to the right place.
