This yacht reminds me of the Samsung Galaxy Tab. It has a similar rectangular design.

I found it mildly interesting.If you would take a look there is nothing else new posted so what's the damage?Was some Earth shattering story not posted in favor of this?Just chill out and scroll past stories that don't interest you instead of all the petulant whining.You are always free to start your own site and only post stories that please you.
Interestingly you not only wasted your no doubt precious time reading the article,but wasted even more time posting a useless complaint about it that will have no effect whatsoever.lol

Reminds me of a story my next door neighbor told me many years ago:

He did some carpentry work for a big strip mall near us. However, they didn't pay his bill, which was about a thousand dollars. He kept sending his bill to them and nothing happened.

So he got a lien put on the building he had worked on. Apparently nobody noticed this.

A year or two later, they decided to sell the mall for probably a million dollars, and that's when a title search turned up his lien.

Oh boy, did they pay him then

No worries, I'm sure every single nook and cranny of this ship is patented, including the "use of metal screws."

Your words reveal your profound naiveté regarding ships and ocean sailing. Old Man Sea and Mother Nature will happily devour any ship and its crew which is not truly seaworthy. Becoming seaworthy is a long and painstaking process, especially for a brand new vessel.

I doubt if the Jobs family has the resources to arrange for crewing up their yacht properly from such a long distance away.

And the Dutch firm which manufactured it is most likely mainly interested in delivering the vessel safely to California, a very long distance away, especially by sea. The ferrying vessel may not fit through the locks of the Panama Canal. If not, the voyage may have to be around Africa and across the Indian Ocean, if they don't want to risk the waters of the Middle East.

Why are you assuming that the Venus would be headed to California? The Bay Area isn't a big yachting area. Cold oceans, outside of the bay itself the weather can be very bad (not to mention the "marine layer" that is very gloomy).

The Venus would make a good venue for floating dinners and parties on the bay, but I'd suspect a Caribbean or Mexican (Cabo/Puerto Vallarta) destination is more likely.

The 600' yacht carriers that I referenced to go through the Panama Canal for their Mexican itinerairies.

I was crew on my second navy ship as she went through the Panama Canal, and it was only about 47 feet wide. We had a ton of room in the locks. Battleships and aircraft carriers have been through it.

My point was that if it can't cross an ocean, I'm not interested in it.

So? Obviously, Jobs wasn't interested in a boat that can cross an ocean. What does your interest have to do with that?

I wish I had a nickel for every time someone complained about something being placed on the front page of this website. I'd probably have enough money that I could buy this yacht myself.

In that case, you should perhaps use the "report post" button (red triangle in the left-hand column). That way you can ensure that a forum mod will read your feedback, and prevent cluttering the thread.
