It appears to be, where I live in rural AK, there are few roads and most of the transportation involves boats, planes, or snowmobile. When someone wants a vehicle in a smaller village they usually load it onto a 32foot fiberglass fishing boat with a small crane transport it, then offload with another crane at the destinaion. A few years ago a brand new, well drilling rig fell of a 50 ft boat, nearly capsizing it in the process. $100,000 piece of machinery in the drink and no insurance to cover it. OOPS!
