As impractical as some of those may appear today, ya gotta admit, they did it with style. LOL

Its puzzling why many of these vehicles, designed in Britain, had no roof. Not even the engines were protected.
This is in a country where it seems to rain more than the sun shines!

How long did those 'boats' last from salt water immersion?

Probably as long as the 4x4 that cruise our beaches........

Driving on the beach is fine if you wash it thoroughly with plain water it's no worse than picking up chemicals leaching from the road that can create problems to vehicles, people's health pollute streams, rivers etc. Washing your vehicle with detergents is not good for it or people you breathe in the vapour given off, handle the soap without protective gloves sorry but the list goes on with these products being full of wonderful chemicals that we don't even think twice about using them.

We were tough in the old days
I grew up in Manchester also known as the Rainey city

I always tell the kids about how I used to walk to school in 6 foot of snow

So long as the holes in the floor were big enough to let the water drain out it was ok

Land Rover had this perfected quite well

Maybe driving on salt treated icy roads might be as bad as driving on the beach & through salt water, but I think you're drawing a fairly long bow with your other comments!

Most people don't drive through salt water that's a bit different to just sand. No matter how long the bow is there are lots of other things to consider can't just blame the beach.

Can remmber one the same as the one with the Lister engine being used to move freight & luggage on the local railway platform. Bill
