Cool idea as a novelty. I cant see it being much good as a ATV or a Jetski and i bet it costs as much or more than buying one of each.

wonder what happens when you "beach" it with the wheels up, if it is strong enough to lift itself up while deploying the wheels.

Unimpressed - neither is optimized, you'd have to settle for a quad the size of a small car and a less manueverable wave runner... Cool idea, but for the price you can have a cool quad and a nice wave runner (but not the 4 cylinders, which is cool :-)

40K, Really? You could buy top of the line ATV and jet ski for way less and both would perform way better. Looks way to wide to be a usable ATV.

My mom used to work for Gibbs technology a few years ago. But she worked for the military humvee/boat division. There was a total of three: humvee/boat, car/ boat and quad/jet ski. They cut the first two programs however.

I just looked over the specs again. I didn't realize how heavy this thing is. 1300lbs! If I roll my Raptor over me it's going to hurt. I roll this thing over me and I'm dead.

We all know compromise on the water with our boats. They are good at one thing and bad at another and no one boat can do it all. Why would you spend $40 grand on an item that is a huge compromise in every area of performance unless you can just throw money at another toy.
