Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha . . . I had forgotten all about that one, IdoraKeeper. Gord had posted a picture of a single, very impressive lobster, and I responded with that picture, posting "That's one fine lobster, Gord, but here's an awesome pair!" - or something like that.

I think everyone enjoyed it, but it got me "moderated."

Port Revel

Probably a 1:25 scale maritime pilot training vessel at Port Revel, near Grenoble (sp?), France. Been training Captains and pilots there since late 1960's on a 4-5ha lake with various scale vessels. Shoreline set up various berthing and docking configuations. The are canals, shallows, wind and current generators so you can run the whole gamut of bad things you might have to deal with. Oh, and the old 18ton scale VLCC (supertanker) has a 1/10th hp motor, comparable to the real thing.
