Cuban migrants trying to reach the U.S. coast in Florida ride in and on a 1951
Chevrolet truck, converted into a marine vessel with air-filled drums for flotation
and a propeller driven off the driveshaft for propulsion, July 16, 2003.
The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Key Largo repatriated 12 Cuban migrants riding in
and on the vehicle back to Cuba after they were notified by an Immigration and
Customs Enforcement aircraft that they had located the floating flatbed truck.
The truck was sunk as a hazard to navigation.
