“Just keep hitting it with missiles and Torpedoes until it sinks” is a way cooler name of an operation than “sinkex” btw.
A brief excerpt from the ad:
We took a harbor cruise yesterday. Some interesting stuff out on the water including a Coast Guard icebreaker in dry dock and a new ferry under construction.
Planelopnik and Boatlopnik follows. After spending the night on Whidbey Island in Washingon I had to run down to Seattle to pick up some friends for the rest of our vacation week I got lucky with the ferries and has about 30 minutes of extra time. I opted to drive around the access roads of Paine Field. This is the…
That must mean summer is here.
Picked up a ‘69 Chris Craft last fall and have been steadily working on it the past couple months. Been making some solid progress lately, seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
Obviously no one checked the tide charts.
America’s cup racing crossed that line. That’s a hydrofoil system. It’s not a yacht and it’s a catamaran-ish design but it’s not on hulls so it’s just a foil boat? Yeah. I’m gonna call it a foil boat. And sails? Nope. They’rbasicly hinged aircraft wings. Yeah. So let’s go race a carbon hinged-wing-foil-boat.
According to the description it’s running a 606ci Chevy.
Sadly, the Austin household must reduce the amount of #Boatlopnik in their lives.
Presumably because of a damaged rudder the almost 400m long “CSCL Indian Ocean” ran aground and is now stuck on the Elbe river. Attempts to pull the ship back into the shipping channel haven’t been succesful so far.
So I am looking to pick up a cheap boat for this summer. Something probably under 5K. I’m not expecting much. It just needs to float and run.
So when I win tonight, not if, when... My first action as a newly minted near-billionaire will be to sponsor NOVA on PBS. My section action will be to interview famous yacht builders to start recreation of the most beautiful boat of the 1930s.
Not these ones...but this one
My grandfathers boat!
But this was taken in New Hampshire, and the guy transports boats from the factory in Tennessee, so apparently it’s legit. I’ve just never seen anything like this on the road, before or since.
This could be the coolest ship I’ve ever seen
This is what happens when you have a long boat crossing the narrowest part of a harbor that has a very strong current.
