Growing up in Mississippi along the river, I was especially interested in this episode. The tractor would have won had they installed some real paddles. They sure came up with a piece of junk for a boat too. Hated to see the old B get hacked on but was still hoping it would win.

Just curious, but did the tractor powered boat and their team win?

No, the team with the B had a superior power source, but squandered the advantage with an inadaquate hull design, a lack of engineering skills and a poor performance from the driver/operator.

You could tell listening to it. It was running at idle or only just above. Even if she had opened it up it wouldn't have helped much as the paddles couldn't have put the power into the water. SAm in NS

I agree. And I don't think she had a clue as to why it had two brake pedals. That thing should have been reasonably manueverable by braking the left and right paddlewheels. Instead it seemed to wallow like a dead whale.
Of course, I wasn't there, just the way it looked on the tube.

I saw that!!! What a waste to chop up that tractor.

But it seemed to work good for 20hp only,... But they needed larger paddles. Oh well,....

But glad to see they actually made it work.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Implements and Their Use - by Curtis Von Fange. Dad was raised during the depression years of the thirties. As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'. My dad dreamed that some day he would have his own tractor with every implement he could get. When he reached his early sixties ... [Read Article]
