Like a DUKW to Water
One of the Yellow Duckmarine tour DUKWs enters the dock complex at Salthouse Dock in Liverpool. Four DUKWs run continuous one hour tours around the docks and the city centre on most days.
The DUKW is a six wheel drive amphibious truck developed by Genral Motors during World war II and served with distinction in many parts fo the world supporting amphibious landings. the name comes from the model naming terminology used by GMC; the D indicates a vehicle designed in 1942, the U meant "utility (amphibious)", the K indicated all-wheel drive and the W indicated two powered rear axles.
