Hi Tim,

Yea, I saw that on GMA about 4 years ago. I wonder why it's not catching on.

Maybe too expensive?

so how stable is this thing when a boat wake hits it? seems that narrow and that tall it would rock pretty bad.

One of my co-workers today suggested that a "submersible RV" would be more fun - I told him that I already have one, you just need to wear SCUBA gear when driving it underwater (and it may take a while for the water to drain out when you go back ashore Grin)

Wouldn't you love to drive down the ramp into the water, yelling NO BRAKES just to create a stir in the crowd. Then take it back to the dealer after the test drive....

Not to worry, there is a lot of marble and granite in it to keep it from rocking Grin  If it is the one I'm thinking of it also has inflatable sponsons when it is in the water.
