Early Amphi

Not trying to put words in Daves mouth, so to speak, but perhaps he meant waht sort of drive train was there. Steering also looks interesting, as there seems some type gearing inthe front wheels after they were lowered. It looks like they would have locked into the support near the water line. I wonder if that was all manual or automatically operated. Seems like possibly daylight only as I see no definate lighting. Notice that the door is above the water line. Note sure they would have had a good sealant method in the period, perhaps early 20s.

But how do you steer the boat with the wheels up? Must have also had a rudder of some sort. When the wheels are up are they disconnected from the steering gear, if not they would hit on the sides of the car??? Very interesting Amphi....
