I'd like to think that I could do just a lil' tiny bit better than that Tao!

Although you do get seduced by the space and amenities. I'm sure KnottyGirlz would luv all the features of this yacht. Now, the trick is, how to get it all compressed into a 31' trawler????

My post #409 - strange object - I first thought was a Star Trek Klingon bird of prey type vessel. But later on when I got to Le Marin, Martinique I saw the same vessel being used as a tourist underwater sightseeing (glass bottom boat kind of thing) vessel.

I thought it looked kind of familiar. We took a tour on one similar to that out of Ste. Anne, Martinique, I believe it was. It had a big plastic bubble in the hull for viewing the fish and coral.

I think a long standing mystery has been solved. It's a "Illudium PU-36 Explosive Space Modulator".....

In photo 422, what are those guys looking at? Or, are they hiding their heads in shame? Or, are they doubled up with laughter? Looks like a stretched tow rope to the boat. I believe that to be a Ford truck so don't buy any white Fords unless you really check it out for water damage. The boat and trailer look ok so no big deal. The truck is probably insured.
Regards

You need to check that the water is deep enough for launching. Serious hull damage when the water is too shallow. The guy in back is saying "looks too deep to me Luke". The other guys is saying "could be worse - could be my truck. Maybe we should back up and try boat end first.".

How about this fine vessel? Sure, its in need of some finishing work, a bit of a "fixer-upper" some might say, but its certainly a strikingly unique vessel. Its currently for sale in New Zealand, but you might have to be quick to secure this piece of unique nautical art for yourself.
