I like the use of a post hole digger boom modified for the propeller!

I have to admit, I am impressed! Not sure of any practical use, but a fairly formidable challenge was met with amazing result.

Best use of that thing and all other N-Fords would be to let it sink so the fish would have some new habitat.

I believe if he had shallow ribs on the rear wheels, like on a paddle wheeler in addition to the propeller, it would have been a lot more efficient.
