    Not a bridge as such but equally impressive: the Falkirk Wheel. It uses the water as the counter balance (kind of).

    The Sunday afternoon disco at the Mosman Rowers. Happy days.

    The Manly Ferry sure is lost. It is sailing under (through) the Spit Bridge. Anybody know why? Sightseeing cruise?

    That's a Sport Boat?

    Top one. NZ design. Oldish, mid-1990s (?). Hasn't been in production for many years. The 2nd photo is of the also named Elliot 7 (confusing) which came much later but is a training/match racing keel boat.

    Assistance required in aisle 5. Any ideas aside from lots of carbon fibre. Search Google for image turns up zilch.

    Sylvia Sorrente. And it could be that Snags spelled her surname

    Hobot, please don't start talking Snaggs, my life is complicated enough as it is.

    Construction of the Gladesville Bridge in Sydney. Early '60s. The marina in the background is still there.

    Larry's AC50 Circus

    Are all New Zealand AC fans as 'friendly' as the ones on this thread? They are doing Auckland a disservice. Supporters of other teams might worry that they will have the crap beaten out of them if they go to Auckland in 2021.

    Jay Leno in his video says it is going to have a double clutch whatever the hell that is.

    2019 52 SUPER SERIES

    Seven different winners in a nine race series. Downwind speeds of up to 25 knots. Check the boats together at 0:46. I often think about why these boots are not been used for the America's Cup. The daily video reports though short are worth watching as well.
