Thanks for the video!

Me personally, well not until it can pull a skier. . .and before anybody chimes in and says it will pull a skier, KINDA SLOW, we like it at about 25-30 knots!

Wonder what kind of effect a strong wind gust would have on it?

Oh, well, probably not in my life time.

First thought - WOW!

Second thought (after owning pontoon boats most of my adult life), is it top heavy? From looking at it, that's almost guaranteed. It's very likly one good wave/wake coming at it from the side away from tipping over.

Last, I wonder what it's like getting insurance that would cover it when on the water?

The video said it was not top heavy, but that seems unlikely. Perhaps not too top heavy for their standards. I have to imagine that if they capsized easily, the manufacturer would have big losses.

Besides, I suspect that all our MH can do that already...

Back when I was teaching skydiving, I used to tell my students that skydiving was easy and everyone can do it... ONCE.

My job as instructor was to make it so they can skydive more than once, or at least do something after that first skydive!

So, while we could drive our MHs into the water now, it would be nice to be able to do it more than once, or at least do something with our motor homes after we drive them into the water (something other than pay large repair bills, that is)

It does open new windows, when you think of it... No more WalMart parking lots. Now it's down to the beach for a bonfire, and when your done, drive down the beach and into the water, and don't come back till morning....
