    I don’t see a Demon in that mix.

    It was a stupid race. They had a GS Vette, instead of a Z06?
    And why the hell did have a Cayman AND 911 Turbo S?
    I refuse to argue with idiots, because people can't tell the DIFFERENCE!

    Because everybody is keeping their money in the Cayman Islands ever since 9/11.

    Coincidence? I think not.

    LAPD Electric BMWs Appear Unused Or Misused
    But sources say some personnel are reluctant to use the electric cars because they can only go 80-100 miles on a charge.

    Lots of Teslas in the vicinity of Hanover NH (Dartmouth College) -- there's a Tesla charging station at one of the local shopping centers (in the sales tax free shopping Mecca that is Lebanon, NH) that's about like that. They do good "business", too.

    More than a few Leafs (Leaves?) and Volts in the area, too.

    Plus, there is a DiAngelo's Subs right across the road. And a great beer store too. :p

    that could be kind of important, vis-a-vis a Tesla purchasing decision ;)

    So they can buy it as their, you know 5th car to go along side their porshe or lambo and drive when they want people to talk about how "environmentally friendly" as they drive to the yacht club to get on their super green 20 foot yacht :astonished:

    There is no such thing as a 20 foot yacht. That's more or less a dinghy.

    He meant... 20 feet





    WIDE!

    Since yacht is a Dutch term, it's designated as being 10 meters long or more which is roughly 33 feet at least.

    So if you have a 20 foot boat with a cabin, it's not a yacht, it's a cruiser or cabin cruiser.

    That's for pleasure craft. There's also no upper limit on the yacht size for pleasure craft. They just have classes of yachts like mega-yacht or super-yacht.

    For commercial or other industrial applications like a warship, there is no designation for a ship below yacht that I know of. Anything smaller than 30 feet is typically a launch or other small support vessel/boat. A yacht is a ship. A cruiser is significantly larger than a yacht. But a yacht of that class is typically around 100-200 feet long depending on intended mission and in regards to sailing yachts, the rigging type as well.
    You're just jealous 'cause the voices don't talk to you!

    Dan is also in the country surrounded by a sea of corn, not much water large enough to actually put a boat on..... Closest large body of water is Lake Michigan.... and we never headed north for vacations lol......

    Next time I will just stick with a jet analogy instead lol........

    Slalom water skiing next to barges is exciting on the Illinois river. That will pucker your bottom end. You definitely do not want to fall.
