Something a little different today. This is a sea tractor that takes people between Burgh island and bigbury on sea when the tide is in. Burgh island is where Agatha Cristie stayed and wrote at least one of her books. The island can be reached on foot when the tide is out via a beach. Just thought some would find it of interest. The sea tractor as its engine up where people sit and the wheels are turned using hydroulics
A bit of clone work

Good morning Codge
Very interesting capture and in my book very well done, as you are showing its location which is the beach with city behind, and everything is very sharp, and colorful against a great sky.

This looks somewhat like our hay carriers but probably easier to tow. It could be very useful for the apple growers when its picking time. Very interesting and thanks for sharing.
I am wondering if its hydraulic, if it can be raised or lowered?
