I got a great chuckle from your phrase - "look at those power boats at the fuel dock... like drunks at the bar" 
It is odd making jokes in videos -  you never get to hear if they work

- like trees falling in a forest

I made a joke about Spanish martello towers being taken from behind by the British Navy

One kind chap sent me an email saying that it had cost him a keyboard due to a serious coffee spillage.

that made me happy - as did yours

This bloke seems sane compared to the British version

He may be a bit eccentric, but he's rowed the Atlantic single handed two or three times (west to east) and sailed it a few times in insanely small boats.

Hmmm, homemade, steel, twin keels, a chine of sorts, as fair and smooth as a baby's bottom, what does that remind me of...

It'd be even more awesome if it could submerge (more than once). A whale shaped submarine - maybe it could be his next project.

I am afraid that the submarines that Canada bought used off the Royal Navy some years ago were in approximately the same condition as this whale ship. Google "Canada Submarine Problems" if you must. If there was ever a used vessel transaction that in retrospect should have made it to "Mocking ads on Craigslist"......

None of these can hold a candle to the Ark of Urk, which is all too good to be true.

Disqualified on a technicality: it's built on a barge so its basic seaworthiness is somewhat assured. This shows a fundamental lack of nuttiness on the part of the creator. This thread is strictly full-nutjob.

How'd you like to be the owner of that Nauticat in the foreground. And I thought my looming powerboat neighbor was a PITA...

I think if you are going to go through the trouble of building an Ark, it's a cop-out to build it on a barge!

There's nothing wrong with hanging out with a gaggle of smart, strong, independent young women as long as you're a gentleman about it!
