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.
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.
Greetings from Italy. We are in Santa Margherita and took the family into Portofino for dinner. The place is a beautiful spot. Anyway. This monster was parked in the middle of this tiny harbor. The Wedge Too. It is 65m of awesome and opened by Issam Fares, billionaire.
So we did take a trek to Table Rock lake for two days in July. I did some math and discovered that we spent as much time driving as we spent on the water.
I was lucky enough to spend the day walking, and boating, Venice. It is a very cool city, especially if you can get off the main tourist thoroughfares. It gets quiet fairly quick.
And I caught a shark!
So, I got a phone call yesterday from my father in law. He got a call from a neighbor that his boat was “on the bottom.” Usually people like to be dramatic about “sunk” boats that are really just swamped. But “on the bottom” doesn’t leave a lot of room for interpretation. We found this:
In response to the recent article on a non-starting car, I thought I’d write up something on boats, because “darling it’s better, down where it’s wetter,” just ask Disney. I worked at a marina on a lake for a number of years and learned a lot. Now that I’m on to other things, I thought I’d share some of that knowledge…
