In Modern Russia, Boats are Giant Intimidating Chainsaws

As spring warms up the northern hemisphere, most locations are enjoying thawing rivers and warming temperatures. But in Russia, where winter is deeper and longer than just about anywhere else in the world, spring means bringing out the heavy machinery. This massive chainsaw boat helps to break up a winter’s worth of ice in the River Dvina so that the spring thaw can bring new life to the area.

Although the awesome chainsaw boat has a real, practical purpose, we can imagine so many other things to use it for. Putting a stop to the obnoxious boat races that ruin nice days at the lake is the first thing that comes to mind. But imagine taking this bad boy ice fishing! Whatever crazy uses we could dream up for the huge chainsaw boat, though, the intimidating, Mad Max-ish appearance of the monster vehicle could be the most impressive part of it.
