Lets See Here:

After LeBaron's disapperance, the Prosperteer appears near Miami and narrowly avoids a crash landing. Later, it crash lands into sea after firefight with Cuban gunboats and chopper. Pitt, Giordino, Gunn, and Jessie LeBaron are aboard Prosperteer on its final voyage. All survive.
DENNING'S DEMON'S: B-29 superfortress bomber assigned to take atomic bomb (Code Name: Mother's Breath) and drop it on Osaka, Japan. Is shot down and destroyed by Japanese "Zero" fighter plane only 1 hour from bombing run.

|Have we all forgotten about the land yacht in "Sahara" made from parts from Kitty Manock's plane?|

|I guess I just have a good memory for the more obscure forms of transport they`ve used. I recall in Night Probe the chapter where Pitt conned Al into operating the railroad handcar in the middle of a thunderstorm.|

|Personally I love the Motorized bathtub and Pullman Car|

Of course. How could one forget it? But how to describe it?
"A small bathtub outfitted with an outboard motor used to escape a Cuban military facility."
I think somebody else said this - CC & DP revealed does provide a comprehensive list of planes, ships, car, and what ever else.

|A few more ships mentioned in Dr. C.`s books: The Empress of Ireland (Night Probe), the USS Iowa (Vixen 03), the Stonewall Jackson (Deep Six), the presidential yacht Eagle (Deep Six), the tramp steamer Pilottown (Deep Six), and I don`t remember the name of the sidewheel ferry boat used in Inca Gold.|

|Let us not overlook the obvious. Shall I mention the Titanic? Largest vessel of its kind at the time. Sorry, I'm not biased or anything.|

|We can`t forget the Antarctic Snow Cruiser he drove in Atlantis found.I don`t know if this is what you meant by `any other transportation`, but do you remember the donkey he rode in The Mediterranean caper?|
