Test of Higgins Boat in Louisiana, United States. A 45 foot Higgins steel engine powered tank lighter boat in Lake Pontchartrain. The boat hits the shore, lowers its bow ramp and a tractor drives off the boat on to the shore. The tractor drives away from the shore, and the boat moves away into the water. In different sequence, the empty boat comes to the shore and lowers its bow door ramp. The tractor arrives and backs onto the boat. A photographer takes closeup pictures during this process, With the tractor on board, the boat raises and closes its bow ramp door, and proceeds away carrying the tractor. The process is repeated.
(Note:This film is silent. But "motorboating" sound was inadvertently generated when its perforations were scanned. This background sound is heard continuously although the film is "silent.")
