Nice repost of that cool looking racer, wolf. I can only say that you can only exit that speed racer wearing a cape. Anything less would be insulting!!

I like that one also, knotty!! Crazy how things just happen!!

Sales ad for the previous post. Beautiful sailboat still in slip available! Looks great in the water! Excellent for that adventurous couple. A great way to see some of the local sea-life.

I see there are a lot of empty slips. This guy should have gotten the hint.

This is a pretty cool one, that many of you have seen in a James Bond movie. My father still works for the company that built it in Riviera Beach, Florida. Built by Perry Technologies, now part of Lockheed Martin. And yes, it is a real car/sub and actually works as shown in the movie.

This one is crazy... here is a Jet Boat... literally. This jet overshot his landing and ended up in the water. But it doesn't end there! No way... watch is spool up its engines and do a little boating. If you've not seen this video, it's just nuts!!!!
