Re: Chinese yacht sinks

I believe that you don't want a Chinese launch system (air bags over a too-steep incline) like this.

Re: Chinese yacht sinks

Only the back half sunk. Seats up front are still available. Book now while supplies last.

Re: Chinese yacht sinks

Somebody forgot the drain plug(s). That's what happens when there's no Captain and everything is done by committee. Let this be a lesson learned.

Re: Chinese Yacht Sinks

With the air bag launching system I'm wondering where the barn they built the yacht in was

Re: Chinese Yacht Sinks

The openness to show when things go wrong is amazing considering how closed a society they used to be.

Re: Chinese Yacht Sinks

You all laugh but here's a picture of China's first aircraft carrier on patrol. Rumor has it the technology was stolen out of a video game app from the iPad assembly plant next door. (As seen in the photo)

Only one problem, they seem to have built it in a lake. Unless they plan on having a billion people lift it and carry it to the ocean.
