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.
