If you keep them well watered, apparently you can harvest  them in the fall.

Main jetty, 4th from left, bow to top - that's us.  Do you have a year Hobot?  If I'm right, earliest is 1970, latest is 1973.

One of the most evil and contemptible "humans" who ever lived.

Certainly in my lifetime.

He suffered a truly karmic death.

Thanks Hobot - 1968 it could still be us, but not the boat I thought it was (previous boat, same owner, same berth).  Explains why the photo doesn't show some large boats I thought would have been there on that jetty.

Cheers

It wasn't meant to look legit. Obviously, you have never watched the movie.

Deathe Race 2000

That movie was some hilarious slapstick black humour. The driver (Stallone?) that reversed over his pit crew to gain the points for them after the last pit stop.

Rolling the residents of the retirement center out into the street in their wheelchairs just before the racers came through.  :D

Alcohol + sun + youth + crowd. Started with a couple drunks behind the bleachers trying to forcibly take bathing suits off passing women. Police intervened after some complaints and started to arrest the drunks. Crowd in the bleachers pelted the cops with bottles, cops called more cops and that triggered hundreds rioting overturning and burning police and lifeguard vehicles. Had to call lotsa cops from neighboring cities and the county sheriffs. Took hours to shut it down.

Saunders Roe "Princess" flying boat at the first one's launch at the East Cowes works in 1952.  The largest all-metal flying boats ever built. 

None saw service, and were laid up, one in Cowes and two at Calshot until being scrapped in the 60s.  I remember walking past the Cowes one as a nipper.  A massive creature.

I'm going to guess the plane is about to be jettisoned over the bow, as it's hooked up to the launching bridle. The holes are punched into the skin so it sinks quickly.

Either that or the plane was just recovered on deck?

Missing wings, horizontals and the engine?  Either way, it'd be quite a show.

Worked with a guy who served on a carrier. On the way to Hawaii, they tested the catapults by throwing junk cars into the next week. The crew loved it.
