    That would be good, except it wouldn't force US politics threads down the page. A guy has to have some sort of fun, eh? Isn't that what The Bilge is for - having fun?

    Something about that rendering reminds me of MC Escher.

    Is that because the mothership is too big to enter Monaco?

    The world would come to an end. Trust me on this.

    I think this is a fun concept. Hopefully someone will choose to build it.

    I’ve often thought about the concept, but using a Jetski and small houseboat.

    What's the gestation period before the mothership pops put a little baby boat? And will it be a jet ski or a kite surfer?
