This afternoon Pete and I went to check on our boat, but stopped by another place along the river to see if that 100-foot yatch was still anchored out.

Oh yeah, it was. And it was pulling up anchor, turned around, and started down river. It's named "Mi Gaea" and it's registered out of the Cayman Islands. So we did a Google search on the name.

It just happens to be a "mega-yatch". At 155 feet, it is one of the largest private yatchs in the world!! Holy Schmoley!!

Here's a link to what it looks like inside and out:

Here's some more outside pics:

Pete took a pic of it last night but today's look-see at it would've been a real closeup. Too bad Pete listened to me and we left the camera home.

BTW, our little 23-footer sailboat is doing fine...

Barbara~~~and PA's lottery is really, really up there....

BTW, "Mi Gaea" means "Mother Earth" or "mother of the Titans" in Greek mythology.

That thing must be huge. When I found that plane for sale I also run across this. Big Boat (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2432608797&category=26 432)

I'll need another job or 1000 to afford the thing. It ain't cheap you know. Jeez I complain about buying gas now but 9000 gallons. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif Hey Barbara, it's in your neighborhood.

Ron,

This boat has two 900 hp motors!! And probably has a de-salinizer onboard for fresh water.

But it's gone now. We saw her turn and go down river. But what a pleasure to have seen her!!!

She was formerly known as "The Blue Moon".

Barbara~~~keeps playing them lottery tickets... /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Whaddaya think?

$8 million? or more?

If you've ever watched the Formula One race from Monte Carlo the bay is filled with big yachts. Turns out many of them belong to the drivers /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif. They sail their yachts in for the weekend rather than flying.

I don't know why, but the concept of a boat with a bath-tub and/or hot-tub in it makes me chuckle hehehe
