After Mr. Wheeler passed away in 2009, his widow refused to let the dream die. So, she hired engineers and made it happen. The engineers decided to replace the paddles with an impeller that was sourced from a jet ski.

In this second video, the 2012 prototype is tested in the water. The video doesn’t explain why but there is a tremendous amount of smoke billowing from the vehicle toward the end of its excursion. It might be condensation, if water got in the engine bay, but it looks too thick and bystanders can be heard speaking of smoke.

The video below is from an online review, by Evo Magazine, of the Scamander.
