    To laugh or to cry?

    superyachts are truly magnificent, awe-inspiring beasts, and the individuals who own them are much the same.

    Eclipse

    Valued at $800 million, and until earlier this year the biggest private yacht on the sea at 162.5m long, Eclipse is pretty much as good as it gets when it comes to superyacht luxury. She boasts an armour-plated master suite, two swimming pools, two heli-pads, a hall and a cinema, along with a mini-submarine and its own missile defence system
    WTF?

    Just to show that not all modern motoryachts are peculiar looking,this one is available to purchase and I think it is quite good looking.The bow in particular reminds me of some of the Russian warships of the last fifty years.




    How much? Well probably more than I will find down the sides of the armchair.

    <satire alert!> John, John, John... Haven't you been reading here long enough to know that such boats are all the realm of evil plutocrats and financed by nefarious schemes to defraud the poor working man of his meagre wealth, pride and manhood, and all such things should be vilified and condemned. Now go wash your eyeballs with bleach and don't sin again! <grin>
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    Peter that first picture in your first post here looks to me like it was designed by a planemaker. Yes, hand plane. A wooden scrub plane perhaps?
