Yes Bob, it has been posted on a few forums and yes there is certainly a lesson to be learnt. Not sure whether that driver falls into the incredibly brave or incredibly lucky basket. There is a third option but I wont be so unkind to list it.

Cheers

He may have been crossing the Bogan River. In that case, it seems to fit the circumstances.

Nearly sure this is at the top of lake Lyal near Lithgow, during a flood. I have driven the boat across this crossing and the sounder indicated 2m depth.
Sad thing is a lot of people have drowned their vehicle, and one bloke nearly wiped his family out trying to do the same. My mate actually heard their cries for help while he was fishing, and came up in a largish boat and picked them up.

mikehzz,

Not really a similar situation, as there is no "flow" with the pond the Suzuki is in. Still it sits very high in the tail for a standard tank.

Wayne & Slly.

Hi Bob,

It has been posted before, though I have trouble with the fact that you have used ......

"Experts" ......... & "Safe" ....... in the same sentence.

It is still a matter of DEPTH vs FLOW and I would like to know if there are standard tanks under that vehicle.

First question after that would have been ....... do I need to go across there??

Cheers,
Wayne & Sally.
