So you really want a boat but in these tough economic times you don’t have the coin to buy one? Worry no more. If you can scrounge a couple 55-gallon drums, an outboard and a sh*tload of expanding foam you too can turn your truck into a multi-purpose amphibious vehicle that’s sea-worthy enough for the English Channel.

The video is long, but hilarious. If you’ve never watched “Top Gear” on BBC America, you’re missing what is quite simply the best show on television.

The sheer convenience of such a rig boggles the mind, doesn’t it? Burned-out trailer bearings? Non-working trailer lights? Backing down the boat ramp? All history. Just hit the lake and go. Literally. It’s brilliant.
