Seagoing tractor at Ryde Sands I.O.W.

Saw this tractor about half a mile out to sea recovering the inshore lifeboat on 28-11-10. The tide was going out at the time, and it goes out a very long way very quickly.It started snowing shortly after this pic was taken.

From the colours I assume this is a John Deere?

One wonders how long it will last if it's primary job involves driving in the sea. Must require a lot of careful washing.

There used to be quite a lot of RNLI tractors towing into and out of the sea but don't see as many these days.
Down at Bigbury in the SouthHams area of Devon there is the boat/bus, think that's what they call it, it is used for access to and from Burgh Island when the tide is in. It's been there for years. Must have a photo somewhere!!

You can see it in one of the episodes of Poirot
