Does anybody know of a reputable, proffesional, real-life snorkel manufacturer? I am looking to make one, and I need something to base it off of.

I would do a ALF snorkel boom. Since snorkels aren't made any more a older 70's style one would be cool.

Oh, didn't know they aren't made anymore. Now my question is, are Telebooms or Squirts like Snorkels, 'cause I don't know what they are...

Not at all. Squirts are basically an extension ladder with a water way on the bottom and a teleboom is kinda like a Snozzle.

If you wanted to build something like a snorkel, I would recommend a Bronto Skylift, like this. http://www.sjrfd.ca/Portals/0/Vehicle/2006%20Bronto%20Skylift.jpg

Actually both are waterways with escape ladders slapped on top as an option. Neither uses the ladder as the main structure - otherwise they would be "ladders" and not elevated master streams. :) Snozzle is more like a Snorkel with the two booms.

If you don't care for a "new" Snorkel you can always remount an old one onto a new chassis. Philadelphia remounted two 85' Snorkels. If you want something completely new you may want to wait and see what Rosenbauer does for Chicago's new squads. They'll be smaller booms but if you want to go bigger there's nothing wrong with imagination. :)

Thanks for all of the help, everybody. I think I am going to do a Rosenbauer T-Rex articulating platform, which is a snorkel.

You could try a Bronto Skylift.
