I do think most of us can relate Franc. What we want and what we can afford to often are not even close.

Franc, at one time in my life I might have been all over that but these days I'm way too old to spend my remaining years heeled over at 20. If it doesn't sail flat ... all the time, I'm not interested. The old days were fun though.

This is the most interesting boat I've seen in a while. I think that it's pretty cool.

Good find Frank. I had seen a video of that High Speed Landing Craft pulling itself up on the beach. Very slick.

I saw this happen on Lake Powell, UT. Operator hit a hidden rock while cruising off the marked channel. I attempted to tow him to shallow water but the Park Service Officer would not let me take him in tow. It took over an hour for her to sink in deep water. Very sad to watch.

What a shame. With Lake Powell water levels dropping I suspect that will not be the last casualty. Towing one filling with water can be dangerous but I'm with you, I'd rather try to get it to shallow water,and be ready to untie fast if needed.

I don't know either but it certainly is a beautiful boat. The only ones that I have seen that looked like that have been classic Chris-Craft but the styling is different. No doubt, back in the day, other people made similar boats.

Sorry Franc, you were posting as I was typing. I think that you nailed it. I congratulate you.

What I fail to understand is why take a perfectly good boat and install clothes line poles to dry your sheets with? I mean, come on, with all that coin, you'd think they could afford a clothes drier.

No, no idea. I suspect if the hull failed that story would have come out. I would not be surprised to hear some of the people on board suffered some injuries.
