Wheels turn on Portsmouth

Unfortunately no pics. This scrapyard has hosted all sorts of ships and vehicles ion its time including a destroyer, which had SCRAP painted on her side in huge black letters while she was being cut about, to stop people ringing up the navy to complain that she wasn't looking smart enough.

Until I read that last bit I thought they were going to do them up so if Cameron sends us off to fight the Argies we'd at least have something to get sent in on, Oh well I guess pedalos will have to suffice for the time being.

They're about 10 times the size of a DUKW.

I investigated buying a dukw for commercial use a couple of years ago. The cost of getting a ww2 era vessel fit for commercial coding would have been prohibitive. I did come across a guy selling a newbuild version with MCA coding, but once again it was a bit rich for my blood.
Iirc there is one operating commercially in Liverpool
