    We rode on the winds of the rising storm,
    We ran to the sounds of thunder.
    We danced among the lightning bolts,
    and tore the R10's assfromunder.

    In that case, I'm very impressed.

    Anyone who can make a true amphibious vehicle look so nice deserves a medal.

    Peugeot at one time made high quality wooden boats as well as cars, motorbikes and probably many other items.
    Can't find much information about the launches but I remember a good article on them in a Peugeot publication some time ago.
    Guess two production lines collided.

    I misread the thread title. I thought it read Boat anchors.

    I was going to suggest moving it over to the Citroen forum

    Hmmm Dave,
    You just earned a detention for that reply, another outburst like that and you'll get the AF 'Magnetic Blue Triangle'

It is designed to skim the surface so that only the propeller and the tips of the hydroplanes are immersed when it is moving. The boat currently resides in the Queensland Museum, Brisbane, Australia.

    "Déesse" Roland Barthes, 'Mythologies', 1957

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.
