Re: Nautical Oddities

Don't know why this jumped into my head but remember the movie The Horses Mouth w Alec Guinness? Knottyboys pic looks just like something his character Gully Jimson would have lived on and sailed... somewhat disreputable and a bit improbable..

Re: Nautical Oddities



Would you believe this is a Cal 25?Saw it at Cape Vincent NY.
The owner goes to battle reinactments and shoots his seven cannon off for the spectators.
There's a fiberglass hull under all that wood!

Re: Nautical Oddities

Here's one that's a bit unusual.
The mast and boom is of the boat behind it (Hunter) so not to be confused.

Re: Nautical Oddities

We all live in a yellow submarine

This is basically used for inspection of subsurface equipment (docks and such).

Yeah, there's not even space for a par 3, 9 hole on that one, much less a real signature course. Lame.

And then, of course, you need space for the pond to go sailing the Hobie on...

Re: Nautical Oddities

This may not be a nautical oddity but it still got a second look from me as I looked over my stern this summer. The rocks in the background are probably off of Forrest Island and that's Stuart Island of the San Juans in the background.
