Default mega yachts in Miami

Anyone else get a chance to wander through the mega yachts down there? I have a friend that is a riding engineer on a 142 Richmond (the Richmond Lady) and we hooked up with him saturday. Got the full tour . . . . holy crap

Dawn this is juniors rig

The displays were unreal. Lazzara had a giant floating office along with a fleet of unreal boats. I didnt get any pics as my New digital cam took a chit (ironically about the only warrenty i have ever purchased to ) My buddy took these vid clips of us poking around the 142. Cool engine room . . . .

Back in 94 I had a parasail business on the Outerbanks.Kept my boat at a little marina on the intercoastal that catered to yachts with huge seawalls 10,000 gallon an hour fuel capacity and one of thee best and largest prime ribs i have ever eaten.
The kid that worked there was my age and his dad owned the marina and he ran it . Anyways on a good night there could be 12 or 15 yachts rafted up there without owners and it was one party after another from yacht to yacht.I got to see a lot of wild yachts.

The Mega yachts are my favorite parts of the Miami and Ft Lauderdale shows. It is amazing the accumulation of wealth that shows up for those events.

Don't let Osama see that chit. He will confiscate them all to use as hotels for illegal aliens.

I can remember the first time I got a grasp of how effing huge mega yachts. I was 15, my family and I went on vacation to Ft. Lauderdale and we stayed at Bahia Del Mar. I went for a stroll in their marina and WOW...!
