w1651 I told my captain to tie down the dingy to keep it on board. Where was it last seen?...:-)

Boasun The boat size is inverse to the size of that body part

380 ft is equivailent to 380 nano-inches.

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

tdw 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.





Previous work from the same yard....

sailingdog Legally, if you wanted to go almost right up to the ugly scow, you could... nothing they can do about it... they're not a military or commercial ship, so have very few restrictions about how far you have to keep from them.

imagine2frolic 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

sailingdog 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.
