We’re going to need a bigger boat

yachtcarrier.jpg

How do you get a boat from Florida to the Mediterranean? Easy—just put it on another boat. The Yacht Express is a semi-submersible float-on/float-off yacht carrier, now carrying 18 yachts on its first trans-Atlantic voyage. At 209-meters long, it’s the largest yacht transport in the world. (And the only that’s purpose built just for yachts.)

    This way are also the hardest rc boats to master – with a nitro or electric model boat you can just open the throttle and blast round the lake.Research Writing | Dissertation Help

    Atlantic crossing if the going gets rough. Add in the 3-4 week trip with a captain, crew, return air tickets & the provisioning needed and financially it probably starts to make sense.Research Paper Help | Essay Help

    They just need to put enormous sails on it.

    Yo dawg! I herd u like boats, so I put ur boat on a boat so you can sail while you sail!

    Yeah, I keep wondering if it wouldn’t be cheaper to hire somebody to just pilot the boat, but I guess it would cost in human time and other consumables anyways.

    I would love to see a BBG theme day on boats, as long as T-Pain isn’t involved. There are some awesome boats out there.

    are all the drug lords finally fleeing florida? how many owners on this shipment would be shady characters with ill gotten fortunes?

    The idea is to summer in the Med, winter in the tropics. A lot of these boats are not really designed for an Atlantic crossing if the going gets rough. Add in the 3-4 week trip with a captain, crew, return air tickets & the provisioning needed and financially it probably starts to make sense.

    #2 – Most of these boats would spend a good deal of time under power so the Yacht Express may actually be more environmentally sound.

    I took a good, hard look at that motherfucking boat

    There’s something about transporting sailboats via a fossil fuel driven ship that seems wrong to me. Is it really that much cheaper to ship it that way than to get someone to sail it…

    RC sailboats are the most peaceful way to enjoy radio control boating. This way are also the hardest rc boats to master – with a nitro or electric model boat you can just open the throttle and blast round the lake.

    Thanks
