Re: What is this?

She might be on the bubble for this. Every time my wife sees a big beauty, she googles its name. For the big flashy boats, she finds them without exception. 90% of the time, they are listed for charter. Probably a tax dodge, not a real charter boat. 80% of the time, they are for sale. 70% of the time, they have their own domained webpage, with pics and a spot tracker so you can follow their narcissistic owner around the globe.

The bigger they are, the more likely they are custom and the builder themselves has some advertising about their job or their refit.

Once, we googled this monster stinkpot we were anchored next to. Must have been pushing 200 ft. Sure enough, up comes its history, custom builder and owner. A little further down the page were some newspaper hits about the owner, that mentioned his boat. He was a NYC mob boss.

Good to know. Got instantly creepy. Thought we would pass on the sundowners........
