Very interesting use and set up you have on that Ox. It sounds like you are navagating some difficult terrain after your lengthy water journey. I think all that weight you added in pontoons for better floatation in the water is preventing you from being very capable on land. Soft ground and climbing out of banks require the vehicle to be as light as possible. I think you are probably using the Ox in several ways it was never designed for and that thinking is probably confirmed by the huge pontoons and outboard hanging off of it. If a vehicle doesn't fit the user for 100% of his needs, I usually take the time to recommend one that will. In this situation, I don't think any amphib is suited for the need or could do better than the Ox.
