Is it a boat? Is it a tank? Is it unique?


This is the culprit. The boat that strew rushes all over the canal last weekend. A fascinating craft though. It steers like a tank having either or both tracks moving, and seems to go quite well, although I would think that it feels quite choppy to the driver.
I didn't see it come ashore but it looks like it just crawled up the slipway under its own steam. Has anyone else ever seen one?

Never seen anything like it. An amphibious tractor. Now that's really something!
