Options go in order from far fetched to downright silly.
  • Option 1 – Don’t buy it at all since new ones are on the way.
  • Option 1A – Re-paint, gut pump compartment, and install large transverse compartment.
  • Option 2 – Remove the Snorkel (assuming it’s certified), remount on another existing Snorkel Squad chassis.
  • Option 2A – Repaint and leave as is, rewrite the contract regarding engineers vs. drivers, put in service.
