I don't own a boat, but I do some interiors on Narrow Boats.

So this thread is dedicated to all things floating.

To kick it off, perhaps one of my all time favorites - introducing The Maltese Falcon, at berth in Monaco last week:




At 88 meters (289 feet), the ship has fifteen square sails (five per mast), stored inside the mast; they can fully unfurl into tracks along the yards in six minutes. The three carbon fiber masts are free-standing and able to rotate.

The yacht is easily controlled and has been seen to sail off her anchor and away from berths within harbors. The yacht's sophisticated computer detects parameters such as wind speed automatically and displays key data. An operator must always activate the controls, yet it is possible for a single person to pilot the yacht.

The Maltese Falcon has two 1,800 horsepower (1,300 kW) Deutz engines running at 1,800 rpm with a top speed of 20 kn (23 mph; 37 km/h) with minimal wave-making and virtually no vibration or noise and with a smooth and non-turbulent wake. (from Wikipedia)

Fuck work, I'm getting lunch and watch the webcam.

EDIT: Pelorus has its own wikipedia entry, is the ex-Abramovitch yacht and is now owned by record executive David Geffen. So these people need 2 helipads.
M/Y Luna is in North Vancouver, and it is 115 meters and is currently owned by Mr. Abramovitch. He also owns Eclipse; the worlds largest yacht. It's 165 meters.

Oh, and you need two helipads, so that you don't have to hover in yours while guests arrive in theirs. Common courtesy. That and typically the forward helipad is where the service work is done. The helipad that is mid ships is usually off the deck of the owners stateroom.

I'll put up some pics later of Luna and a few others in a minute.

He took Eclipse.

Ahhh finally! Leeboards! I have been to the end of the internet and back trying to figure out what these things were since returning home from Amsterdam in July. I owned a 72 Grampian 30 sailboat on the Potomac for 5 years, and have done some chartering down in the Caribbean. I thought I knew quite a bit about sailboats, but for the life of me I could not figure out what these "fins" were on a majority of the canal boats in Amsterdam. Stumbled across this thread today and there they were! Go figure that I find the answer on a motorcycle forum . Thanks guys!
