This one comes from Miami. Bask in the Florida ridiculousness.
Seattle has three bridges crossing Lake Washington, east of the city, two as part of Interstate 90 and a second as State Route 520. The first bridge is called the Lacey V. Murrow bridge after its designer and was constructed in 1940, originally as part of US 10. This particular bridge had an innovative design and…
Lake season is over, so the boat is home getting cleaned to be put in storage.
...to someone, probably. A little footage of the strangest boat you’ll see today
Whelp, looks like I have to spend the next forty minutes going to random pages and twiddling my thumbs. Also, thanks for patronizing me, website.
I thought about this as a child, then decided it probably wouldn’t work...I’ve never seen someone actually try it. Look unnatural and heavy.
in my opinion. or would if i was better at the shops
Finally back out after replacing a rusted out crossmember on the trailer. What a pain in the booty that was. New Chinesium bimini top does the job great.
“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.
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.
