Well, I am south of the MASON DIXON line...but to tell you the truth...I'm a Union Soldier. Abe Lincoln is one of my greatest heroes.

Wil Schulz, I was thinking about taking my new boat for a cruise up the intercoastal waterway...ya want me to stop in Long Island to pick you up? I figure we can head down the Ste Lawrence seaway and pick up ole K1961 and do some Bass fishing!

As for drinking, it can be a vice and it is a drug so I'm not offended by non-drinkers.

that's not to say I don't enjoy a great tasting beer, wine or bourbon http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

The port console is dedicated to the engineering, start-up, and monitoring systems underway. The starboard one serves for the steering, control, communication, navigation and interceptor systems.

Powerboats are no fun. You want THIS

http://www.mirabellacharters.com/images/mir_v2.jpg

Mirabella V - Requires a smigin more skill to sail, but watch out for the tides. a 150 ton keel drags quite a bit!

Yours for only 50,000,000 (Or $250,000 a week) (My boss helped build it, I helped repare it later) My company built her before I started. Then the driver crashed it LOL! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Now for the size of her.....

http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. Yours to hire at $250,000 a week.

LOL Vital stats:

246 feet - The world€s biggest single masted yacht

295 foot hollow carbon epoxy mast will support some 9,842 square feet of sail, making it the world€s tallest yacht mast

Attached story:

Rocky Start

Mirabella V, Joe Vittoria's 246ft Ron Holland-designed yacht launched earlier this year, in trouble on the French Riviera! The Big Rig apparently ran onto rocks near the entrance to Beaulieu sur Mer harbor, having dragged her anchor. Winds are reportedly Force 6-7 and Mirabella is on a lee shore. Bad times.

Blue_76 - You go down to the Riveria with a 50,000,000 sailboat that is the largest in the world, and you will pull ANY totty! lol. She has powerboats in the hold - I mean that too. The Mirabella V has a stern hatch that allows entrance/exit to a wet dock with powerboats & sailing dingys, and 2 Mirabella V radio controlled models lol

lol! Well with the Mirabella you could always just take em out for a spin in one of her powerboats. But look on the bright side of owing the Mirabella....
