The boat

How are they going to get the boat to the water? With the city overrun by the walker herd, are they going to drag it by hand to the water? Once they reach the water they'll need a boat ramp, otherwise the boat will end up like the othe one. what will they do then?

Boat provides much much needed piece of mind in a zombie apocalypse. You find one military naval base, bam youve got food and supplies for ages for your group. I support the boat.



    I support the boat theory in a ZA as it becomes an impenetrable fortress where you can survive safely from. Kenny's original fishing boat would have been perfect I think, this boat from the house sucks.

    I myself would want a sail boat with an outboard motor (for the short term). One thing is gas eventually becomes unusable as it degrades if sitting for too long so depending on any boat with only an engine is a bad idea unless it is diesel since you can use cooking oil to run it if you have no more diesel. A sailboat is the way to go IMO, too risky when the gas runs out or becomes bad and not usable.

    Food and water is an issue wherever you are. It's the quintessential zombie problem, you need to lock yourself into a location where you can't be reached but you need to be able to leave that safety to gather supplies.
    A boat actually makes a whole lot of sense, you can fish, you can boil and drink the condensated water, you don't even need petrol for the engine as the boat won't sink without it. You can even tempt the walkers en masse into the water to drown, clearing the land for you when you need a battery or anything. A boat is a pretty good option really, moored just away from the land.

  • lee puts it into his magic pants that hold everything and pulls it out when they get to the water. If lee dies, they take off his pants and use it to carry the stuff.

    Lol.....

    Even a boat eventually could be bad due to water shortages. Yes you can boil water but you need fuel or flammable items to keep doing it. You would need to get to land frequently to replenish water or the fuel to boil salt-water...if the survivors understood how to even boil and extract fresh water from salt-water.

    lee can carry a lot of fuel and food in the magical pocket

    I heard Marty McFly used to have a pair of pants just like those

    It's really easy.
    Such a trailer can be dragged by just 2 people. Once it's moving it won't be stopped if there are no hills. And since Savannah is a coastal city I don't think there will be hills.
    Getting it to the coast also shouldnt be that hard at all.
    Just send 1-2 people ahead to make a lot of noise and attract all the walkers, so the trailer-pushers are free to go.

  • I don't think there gonna use the boat. It seems like a means to an end to me.

  • I'm guessing that the boat is the object of desire from the radio man. Whether or not Kenny agrees with this would be interesting to see.

    Makes sense in "there ain't no way"
