The boat size is inverse to the size of that body part
380 ft is equivailent to 380 nano-inches.

If you need a boat that big you must have some seriously deficient body parts.

The Log.com seems to be out of action but this is presumably the beast in question ?
I must admit that I kind of like it. If one is going to have a huge great floating oscenity it might as well be different from all the other huge great floating obsecenities.
Looks like the inspiration is part HMS Nelson.

I think it looks retro, and we got a close up look last month here in Panama. I will look for photos of the garage open. Then we saw her again in Las Perlas. I mentioned to Melanie that it looked like the anchor was wrong, but there were noticable scrapes on her hull.
As far as the big guys staring you down. Stare back they don't own the waters. If you are going to build something like that you have to expect the curious.......i2f

I'm impressed, it only burns 35.167 gallons of fuel per NM... or 633 gallons of fuel per HOUR at a cruising speed of 18 knots... very impressive.

I'm not into bashing but "6,000 miles, thanks to its 211,000-gallon fuel capacity." lets get real, where on the plant has anyone that had anything to do with that fugly thing been?
I'm really not impressed. If funny how money can makes some people stupid.
