The reason I was considering one was to drive across the small lake I live next to instead of driving around it to buy cheese from my neighbor. I make hand carved figurines out of sharp white cheddar of various winning baseball teams (pre 1971, of course). A snorkel would save me time and the lake is only 4ft-5ft deep.Snorkels are the biggest poser mod there is. I know guys who put a snorkel on their truck just to look butch. The farthest they ever go is the far end of the mall parking lot.
