Ephrata, Washington: Boat-Truck

Hwy 28, Ephrata, WA
Five miles south of downtown, on the south side of Hwy 28, just west of its intersection with Hwy 283.

Boat truck.


Someone decided to mate a boat with a truck -- or was it a truck with a boat? Anyway, they must've used a crane to accomplish this. There's some sort of "fan" on the back for "propulsion." It has been in this field since before 1976.
