I think it has inflatable pontoons that when deployed stick out to the sides of the motorhome, sort of like water wings. But still, it's a death trap. If something went wrong that thing would go straight down. My biggest problem with it is that if it (inevitably) starts to sink, you can't just just jump over the side to get out of it. It just looks like a trap to me. I know I'm running on and on about this and I'm sorry about that but I find it deeply disturbing. I will admit that I'm jealous of somebody who has that much money to burn.
I'm glad to hear you'd avoid that nightmare. I couldn't believe it when I first saw it either. Like you say, the weather and water conditions in the video are perfect and it still looks dangerous as hell. I hope they never get approved to market that deathtrap. I can picture somebody driving it into a lake and having it suddenly fill with water and I don't see any easy exits.
Apparently it was built to be a motorhome and then some rich idiot decided to make it amphibious. Hey, call me crazy but if I want to go out onto the water I'll do that in a boat. That Frankenboat thing scares me even on flat calm water. It's just too way too heavy and it doesn't look very stable. It wasn't designed to float. I agree with you that it looks unstable and I didn't hear any mention of stability tests in the advertisement. It would have to be Coast Guard approved and I just can't imagine that ever happening. The passenger carrying Duck boats that you mention are Coast Guard inspected and certified before they can carry passengers but they've had their share of problems.
Unlike the motorhome, the duck boats were designed to be amphibious and even they get into trouble. I think at least a couple of them have sunk with loss of life. Personally I wouldn't go near one of those either. Don't get me wrong, I like boats fine, as long as they're seaworthy.
@- Hootie - I completely agree with what you've said. I despise Trump but I stand in awe of his accomplishments. He's the greatest con man in the history of the world. He decided to pretend to run for President only to get himself some brand name (Trump) recognition and along the way he discovered a loyal following of idiots which evolved into a cult which he encouraged. That cult following catapulted him into the White House. He did that despite the fact that he had decades long close associations with both the American Mob and the Russian mob and was a terrible businessman and employer.
There is a lot more of course but when you stand back at look at this scum bag objectively it really is an amazing story.
She's the poster child for the Clown Army. What a sickening period of time we live in. Good luck to our democracy, it needs it.
I'm so glad that Joe Biden is our President right now. I can't imagine anyone better suited to deal with the immense challenges he faces.
I hope the removal of his tiny little twitter castrated him.
This website is a close as I come to social media. I don't go near facebook or Twitter or any of the rest. It's just this and youtube for me. But even when I go on youtube and start poking around I find an astonishingly large about of radicalized right wing posts. These people are insane and there are tens of millions of them in this country. It's a Clown Army and it's extremely dangerous. They want to rip this country to shreds. If they have another riot and threaten out democracy again I want to see them made an example of and just mowed down. Yes, I want these domestic terrorists dealt with in the harshest manner possible. If we don't stand up to these cowardly thugs we're going to lose our democracy to the worst evil clown in history, Donald Trump.
First of all, in the United States and in most industrialized countries, any man who lives long enough will get prostate cancer, it really is that common. Amazingly, many men are completely unaware of that fact.
Every man over fifty should be able to quote his PSA count when asked. The key to beating prostate cancer is to know when you need to get to a urologist and get a tissue biopsy taken. The way to be able to know when to that is to monitor your own PSA count, and most importantly DON'T EXPECT SOMEONE ELSE TO DO IT FOR YOU. I can't over-stress the importance of that fact so I'll repeat - monitor it yourself! DO NOT expect your doctor to catch it for you, they won't! I knew mine was up to 6 and I knew that it was at a level where I needed to pay attention to it and then one day I just got this uneasy feeling that I should get another PSA count and sure enough it had doubled to over 13 so I was off to the urologist for a tissue sample and then off to radiation. So it wasn't my doctor that caught it, it was me and the only reason I caught it was because I was tuned in, I was paying close attention, and that's what saved me.
And yes, saving the prostate makes all the difference in the world. No change to life style at all. Zero adverse effects on sex life. It really is a miracle. I even have my bladder space back because my prostate shrank back to normal size. I had a hard time convincing my doctor of that the other day but I'm convinced that it did. When I was young I seemed to have a bottomless bladder. I noticed it wasn't as good during middle age and then in the last 10 years (66 in march) I've had periods of time where I couldn't hardly pee. At times it was a nightmare. Now it's like I'm 40 again, maybe even 30, I can hardly believe it.
So the days of men having their prostates removed and being left with no bladder control or sex life should be over right? Think again. That surgery shouldn't even exist anymore except when absolutely necessary but it's still being performed all day long in almost every hospital in the country.
Proton beam radiation just isn't all that well known yet so it isn't talked about all that much. Nobody recommended it to me, I found out about it by spending a lot of time online researching different treatments.
There are guys headed for surgery right this minute that wouldn't if they knew Proton were available but their doctors aren't telling them about it. You gotta be your own advocate or even get somebody else to be your advocate, just so long as you have one. Doctors should be telling every guy with prostate cancer that they could get the Proton treatment but they don't say a word. The urologist certainly won't tell you about Proton beam because cutting out prostate glands is their bread and butter.
One last thing - my treatment cost somewhere around a hundred and fifty thousand dollars. It cost me zero, not a cent. That happened only because I got professional advice on how to sign up for medicare. It's very important to do it right. Know your number. Good luck!
