    Well here it is signed, sealed and delivered.

    Now that it’s in the open you can get a better idea as to what it is. It’s kind of a cross between a Mike or Higgins boat, a Barge and some African Queen tossed in.

    Now all we have to do is outfit it for diving.

    Any ideas for a name?

    Now that's a boat. Looks like a cross between a landing craft and a tug boat.

    ...and an aircraft carrier.

    It's cool! Dunno about a name though. If I had a boat, I would name it something stupid and people would throw bottles at me.

    It sort of does remind me of the old landing boats that they used in WWII.

    Gary,

    How about "The Ugly Duckling"? :eyebrow: Actually, it looks like a pretty useful dive barge!

    Hehehehe That's about the only way this boat could pick up chicks :D

    It will be set up for extended diving operations and as the Side Scan platform.

    Other than the fuel tank, batteries and 10 10' lengths of railroad track everything below decks is wide open.

    From the first pic that had only the mesh gate showing, I didn't know what the heck this was.... But it gave me an idea for a name. how about the "Bug-Swatter"


    With a front end lift gate like that, you could even pick up fat chicks too!
