Default Boating and BIG Boating

How about a thread showing other boats and some shots of the spectacular yachts we see in the Caribbean. I will look through the countless photos I have of yachts that have been here in front of us at Saba Rock in the BVI. These shots here are of a BIG boat and other boats that may be familiar to some on OSO.

Here are a few BIG boats. Hope it's OK to post saiboat pics. LOL This one did look majestic sailing between St Maarten and St Bartt's.

First 3 pics are in Simpson Bay, St Maarten. That is Northern Lights dwarfing Team PREDATOR at Simpson bay Marina. We also saw Northern Lights last year in the Exumas, Bahamas on our was down to BVI. Last pic is in St Bartt's harbour.

This one was pretty big
