I missed the spring edition of this meet for reasons I now don't remember.  So I was determined to make the fall meet even though the weather was dicey.  The GPS said it was 88 miles from home and we had a disagreement about which route to take.  I wanted me to swing off I-195 east of Providence onto some other road.  Exit after exit it nagged me but I ignored it and took the route I knew would keep me off the perhaps shorter but slower roads.  All worked out well and I found the airport with no difficulty.

We could have used this bucket loader last spring when we had 19 years of gravel to move!

I noticed this very interesting vehicle a short distance from the airport.  I will call on Monday to ask how they use it.

So, as promised I talked to the folks at Alumatech Marine this morning.  They tell me that the amphibious truck is used for industrial/commercial purposes as well as taking the public for sight seeing rides ala the Duck Tours in Boston and many other cities.  The vehicles name is LARC 5, Light Amphibious Resupply Craft 5.  It uses a Cummings 903 diesel for power and has a load capacity of 5 tons. 

Alumatech is on the same road as the Plymouth Airport and may be reached at 508-746-7774.  In addition to aluminum fabricating they also do Thermal Arc Plasma Spray work and can build up many different types of metals and other materials to rescue worn bearing surfaces and so on.


If you see your exhibit or machine and would care to drop me a line or two, or even a paragraph, about it I will be delighted to add your comments to this page.  Please send to   To identify a photo just hover your cursor over the photo and a tag should pop up.  Please use the last three digits of the tag to identify the photo. For  example if the tag came up  DSC03974.jpg (205067 bytes) the info I would need is 976.jpg. If this is a multi page unit the page number would also be useful.
