Killing Time Blog: Ultimate Hunt/Fish Rig?

What do you call a vehicle that can travel 55 mph by land and 44 mph by sea? No it’s not Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, but it is a WaterCar.

I’ve spent time in just about every type of hunting and fishing rig imaginable, from high-clearance swamp buggies in Florida to high-powered jet boats in Alaska. And while a good buddy of mine owns an Argo and its fun to use for ducks and deer, I think he’d trade it in on a WaterCar .

As the video below shows, the WaterCar flies across land or water, and the transition from car to boat and vice versa appears to be fast and trouble-free. So, did I post this video simply as an excuse to showcase some bikini-clad ladies? That’s up for you to decide, but be sure to watch at least the 1:07 mark to see the rig in action in a hunting scenario. (Yes, I know these guys aren’t really hunting, but then again, “Star Wars” wasn’t filmed in space, either.)

I don’t think you can order a WaterCar in camo, but if you have an extra $125,000-plus burning a hole in your pocket, you can get one in black or olive green. Click here to see all the specs.

Until next time . . .
