    Skye 51: I’m intrigued

    Oh I totally agree. There's a reason why they disappeared. Crew safety was definitely not a consideration, only doing everything possible to keep water out when it came rolling deep across the deck.

    Why do you think we are so interested in what goes on in the States. It's a fact the right wing fools and ignoramuses can't comprehend.

    Of the ones still alive, how many vote Democrat?
  4. That's called "fritting" isn't it?
  5. They weren't - they just took what the Brit's had overlooked.

    Leggs - go back into your old magazine stash and read up on the philosophies in the design sections. Preventing or limiting the possibility of water getting below was what originally drove those manhole hatches. They were essentially an S&S creation and everything they did at the time was predicated on "offshore". The aft cabin under the bridge deck just developed from that.

    You're assuming the USA survives. Wait until November before thinking about the future of your country.

    Nobody said Connolly was stupid. He managed his relationship with Bulger well. His bosses were only really interested in the Mafia until Bulger got so outrageously murderous that they had to wake up.

    You must have missed the part where Whitey's corrupt "handler" got put in prison for murder.

    Everyone is buying boats...

    So you're saying that a normal market, a recession and a recovery all have the same result?
