That's not a boat, that's one of the prettiest cars ever built.
1963, a buddy of my class president pulls up for a party. Black XKE with the top up. out rolls a 5'7" 300 lb guy in ski pants and sweater, followed by TWO women of playmate quality. A vivid illustration of the power of money. Good grief.

So how many "playmates" have you attracted with the Jags?

Three deck barges delivering new cars up and down major rivers. The first company doing this was started in 1915, and these Fords in the picture are early 1950's.

Do you suppose they hired local young people to drive them?
A great job, if so.

When I first saw photos of these auto barges, I thought of The Golden Ray which half-capsized some months back and has disappeared from the news if you don't live in coastal Georgia.
It carried thousands of vehicles and the plan to right the ship has been abandoned.
What will happen is probably similar to the dismantling of the Tricolor in the English Channel five years ago. It was an auto carrier of about the same size, also tipped halfway over on its port side in just a little bit deeper water.

If you have a spare half-hour or so, this video is a simply astounding account of the operation. Saws and pulleys, imagination and guts!

That was amazing, the pictures of the cut section showed all those cars cross sectioned at different points of the cars.
