    Very cool design. Add a little smart car to the launch boat and would be a true world traveler

    Hitting the lottery might cover the deposit on something like that.
    Yes you'd need two of the biggest lotteries. One to buy the boat the other to afford to own the boat. It's very safe to say the closest I'll get to that is listening to Styx Come sail away. Maybe Ricks boat but I'd still need a second job....

    The electric version of the yacht, launch, and helo is much more practical.

    That's a whole lot of deep cycling trolling motor batteries. To charge them would more than likely bring down JF's (@Willow) whole Canadian electrical infrastructure. They'd be out of ice cubes and suffering mightily.

    I think those electric helicopters can only go around in circles. :#

    I had one of those!
    Broke in the first week, I think.
    Mine had a hook for picking up a car.

    Used to really enjoy whistle bombs and bottle rockets (which, when I was in HS and could drive, were both available in VA). :)

  • "Snakes and sparklers...."
    Recipe for an uber lame 4th of July.
    Probably throw in "fountains" into that mix too

    It must be said that metal sparklers , properly prepared, can bring back the good old days of cherry bombs, bull dogs, and yes, silver salutes (1/8 stick of dynamite).
    Doesn't take much, won't give out those instructions other than to say one word: "Electricians Tape".
    By the rolls
    Silver Salutes, move over, the boys are back in town. ⚡💥💯

    Back when you and Donnie (P. Bellisario) used to get up to no good, and accidentally invented the turbo for a helicopter that would later be named Airwolf. You would receive no royalties for your contribution. But Donnie would get his. Yes he would, you would be sure of it. Just then, there was a knock at the door...
