TOPIC: "two wheels, 4 wheels, or no wheels"

"two wheels, 4 wheels, or no wheels" 2 months 4 weeks ago #146647

An eBay commercial with a gal on a hot-rod looking motorcycle, hops in the "Amphicar" and charges off in to the water into a significant wind and wave height. Water is flying over the windshield with no fear displayed.
Can the AmphiCar actually survive this sort of water & speed?

Wheeler Dealers did a show on the Amphicar some time ago. After extensive repairs, Ed and Mike set out on sea trials and became stranded. If I recall correctly, viewers were led to beleive the vessel could manage calm seas at best. A boat's wake might swamp one.
