This Boat With Pop-Out Tank Tracks Is Some Real Brain Genius Stuff

Like any hobby, boats are a huge pain in the ass. Seriously, take the normal maintenance of a car then add the complexity of something that can sink and has to be trailered anytime you want to move it out of the water. That’s boating.

But still, people enjoy it. While I’ve always liked being out on the boat, my least favorite part has always been loading and unloading it (something I, admittedly, have never been good at). Apparently, some genius felt the same and figured they’d install a set of tank tracks so it can just crawl out of the water. No, really.

A viral Tik-Tok video shows a boat seemingly beaching on the sand, thought it quickly transitions to land with the aid of tank tracks. Kinda like a tadpole growing legs, if you think about it.

Now, amphibious cars aren’t a new concept. In fact, the fictitious Lotus-turned-submarine from James Bond, called “Wet Nellie,” even inspired the Tesla Cybertruck’s design. This contraption isn’t new either, though they aren’t often spotted in the wild, it seems.

The boat is manufactured by a company called Iguana and has been around for a few years with its tank-like spin on Sea Legs. The tracks themselves are powered by batteries and provide a rather showy solution to moving from a secret island hideout to the water and back. Or on a public beach—I’m not judging.
