Didn't forget plugs. Just floated under a tree that tipped it and took in water over the side. It sunk like a rock. I now put a rope on the machine and pull it over empty if we can get someone across safe. We were on a river last year where some guys were trying to carry an Argo in a boat. Boat sunk with the load to high and the Argo floated about two miles before it got hung up on gravel. Water was very fast and about 12 feet deep where they went in. Always fun!

This was a good water crossing,
This was the last red Max off the assembly line at the Buffalo factory.
I sold it last year.
Hated to see it go. it was a piece of history.

I donít get along real well with moving water. One of my early training days ended up standing on the seat of the max with very cold water up to my belt. (Not the belt on the machine )

 :o oh my....Did you forget the plugs?

That river was barely a trickle every time  I ever saw it.

Looking good!

Whipperag you are the MAN. I tried a smaller stream not to far from home and got to where I could NOT go up stream at all. Had to get help to get it out of the stream. Good thing you have a larger engine.Glad you made it.
