I got a great chuckle from your phrase - "look at those power boats at the fuel dock... like drunks at the bar"good phrase there ed
"self medicating with boats" - watch out for the phrase being plundered in a forthcoming KTL movie
It is odd making jokes in videos - you never get to hear if they workI got a great chuckle from your phrase - "look at those power boats at the fuel dock... like drunks at the bar"
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.
It'd be even more awesome if it could submerge (more than once). A whale shaped submarine - maybe it could be his next project.In the case above, there's nothing to suggest the whale isn't inherently seaworthy. A bit of windage to be sure, but the hull looks rational. Now that's a proper eccentric.
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"......It'd be even more awesome if it could submerge (more than once). A whale shaped submarine - maybe it could be his next project.
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.None of these can hold a candle to the Ark of Urk, which is all too good to be true.
I've always liked the Brit term 'barking mad'.This bloke seems sane compared to the British version
Even better.let's take a moment to reflect on all these wierdos in comparison to Zeyang and sailing the farm. got a plan, decide to do it in aluminum lapstrake (right?) attracted a gaggle of like minded hippy people, mostly young women, built the goddamn thing and went sailing with his merry band! that's the way its fucking done...jesus christ.
