Randy,
I spoke to him the other day and he had just gotten power back on. He still has no viable phone and internet. He was talking about early next year sometime.

I want a rovers down south t-shirt with the "Sea Rover" on it.

From http://www.lrfaq.org/FAQ.6.taylorFAQ.html

1. Is it true that Land Rovers float?

* Unlike Volkswagen Beetles, Land Rovers do not float. They will, however, drive without any problem drive across the bottom of deep water like, say, a Great Lake or the English Channel. Of course, you can get the pontoon kit if you don't want to wear scuba gear while driving. The 2.25 L engine does not really need a snorkel, it is so rugged it runs when full of water. Two other types include Bob Davis's Mercruiser Rover, and a military application that encased the body shell in a large rubber air bladder that was inflated by the exhaust. It was called the Land Rubber. [RPR & ??]
* That's true, Land Rovers do not float. You have to get a Sea Rover if you want to do any serious off-land traveling. The Sea Rover is a variant of the familiar Land Rover. It is water-tight, has a rear brass drive screw, and a a rudder that conveniently attaches via the pintel hitch. All series Land Rovers came conversion-ready with a pintel hitch attached and the hole through the rear frame member for the propeller drive shaft (Yes, that's why it's there, Taylor). Call Lanny at Rovers North and ask for their Sea Rover conversion package. I think they have them on special this month. [S]
