    My favorite Yacht

    Down here in Jupiter, Florida there's a lot of big boats around. This one may not be the biggest but it's my favorite. Built by McIlwain Naval Architects, she's 120' long 27' beam and, are you ready for this, holds 22,400 USG of fuel. At today's prices on the water that's $100k to fill 'er up. I could win Lotto and not be able to afford this baby Oh yeah, shot with my new (Guy's old) Nikon 85 1.4...

    Image title: "Ours shall be white as well"

    Nikon D50 + 18-70mm, cheap and light package, 620 + 390 g = 1010 g all together, very walkaboutable.

    Nice shots guys. In case you want to get there a bit faster than that sailboat...
    Taken last week at the Palm Beach Boat Show.

    Sailboats have so much grace...the powerboats only have much testosterone.

    Not a yacht perhaps, but it does qualify as a boat. This is from last Spring, a 1941 Old Town square stern, lovingly restored by the original owner's son.

    Here's a picture of the yacht of the King of Norway. It was presented to King Haakon and the royal family in 1947 by the people of Norway as a thanks for the king's help in guiding rebuilding efforts after WWII ... and as a gift for his 75th birthday. It was originally the British motor yacht Philante.

    Leica M8 and 90asph this past summer.
