thats why they have the sea doo's, hook a graplin hook up to a rope on the bumper and drag her out with either the quad truck or sea doo, we've sunk lots of sleds me and my buddies trying to run like 300' with an old yamaha excel III, but we always used man power , 4 guys and a rope yankin the shit out of the thing, lol sucks when ur the one swimming back in the water to hook it up when the ice is still flowating around u

Believe it or not the quads won't sink. The air in the 4 tires is enough to keep it slightly bouyant. It will sink about half way, or three quarters (not sure about the bigger utility quads). It will be easliy towable with a ski-doo, or possibly dragged out if it was shallow enough... Thats still awesome..wouldn't do it with mine.. :lol:

huh, didn't know that. I figured after everything filled up with water it would eventually go under. I don't think I wanna try it either.

yeah the the air in the tires keeps them afloat. some of my friends have utilitys with the big mud tires and they will float across water without even touching the bottom. if you have enough air then its possible to even float a truck, this is a picture of a truck down here in Florida that we see at some of the mud boggin events. he has duallys front and rear and floats across the lake. my friend has a dvd of the guys in the back grabbing onto the tires and rotating with them all the way around. the lake is said to be over 20ft deep

I ride across water all the time. I only do like 4-12 feet though on a river we ride here, and then it's only about a foot deep. I probably hit it about 40-50 (no speedo), sit way back. The only thing bad about it is the backend gets real loose and will try to come around on you. If you don't hydroplane you either have to slow way down or just get soaked and plow through it. Im not sure i'd try a lake or anything though.
