Default Can you find your boat on Google Earth ?

I got a call from Hans and Marc today telling me that Marc's son Michael found my boat on Google Earth. Pic is dated Dec 1, 2008 and catches us idling out of Roberts Bay close to the canal where I keep it when on Marco Island. A few years ago my son in law, Lee found the previous PREDATOR in the Credit Village Marina close to Toronto. I did not save any pics of that.
Just wondering how many here have seen their boat on Google Earth ? Maybe worth taking a look.

Sheesh. Now I'm doing some looking and think this is it again on April 2, 2010 hooked up to the black truck facing what appears to be Gold Rush. That is at Nor Tech's facility in Cape Coral where it is kept. Hmm, supposed to be inside. LOL

pic 1 and 2 the Google street view van went down the dead end street that runs down the side of my house next to my garage. One of the rare times i had it at the house, usually bring it home to load it for the weekend


pic 3 is from Bing.com birds eye view and shows the 28 Batboat in my side driveway and the Wahoo AMT cat in my front driveway.

pic 4 is also from Bing.com birds eye of my shop and shows the 28 Batboat behind my Explorer and my Scarab III in the corner of my lot for the winter



Bob thats a cool shot of your boat heading out, who'da thought you were being watched from space that day lol

I found mine but not in the water, sitting on the trailer next to the cottage just waiting to be used.
