I love the polycarb parts! Those paddle looking things look very intriguing.

Curious, though. With (what appears to be) a 6WD and that rather long configuration, how are you preventing beaching?

The paddles are part of a fairly standard looking roller intake, with some rocker-bogie elements to it.

The 6WD has 6" wheels. Beaching on the HDPE platform is rather unlikely, though we do fail the “corner test”. This was a tradeoff to keep COG down. More likely from testing is you catch your bellypan slightly and skate up, with an unintentional turn as wheels lift off on one side or the other.

Looking good! Ready for some riveting I assume?
