Used to have a boat and saw blokes do stuff like that.

I can see how you can forget to untie the boat from the trailer but backing it all the way into the water including the truck till the interior fills up eludes me.

"Alabama is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. It is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west. Alabama is the 30th-most extensive and the 23rd-most populous of the 50 United States. Alabama ranks second in the area of its inland waterways...

Following World War II, Alabama experienced growth as the economy of the state transitioned from agriculture to diversified interests in heavy manufacturing, mineral extraction, education, and technology. In addition, the establishment or expansion of multiple military installations, primarily those of the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force, added to state jobs."

Reminds me of the Cape Cod Canal. I just heard on local news that sharks are navigating it, too.

That’s beautiful. I’ve always been intrigued by the thought of sailing, but it’s taxing. Still, is there anything quite so romantic?

The people who built the car:

Erdmann & Rossi

The coachbuilding company ‘Karosserie Erdmann & Rossi’ dates back from 1906, when Eduard Rossi joined Willy Erdmann’s company, which he’d found in 1898. Willy Erdmann had been building horse drawn carriages since 1898, but when car-salesman Eduard Rossi joined the company in 1906, they started to offer coachworks for cars as well.

Rossi died in 1909 in a traffic accident and Erdmann decided to leave the company. The main administrator Friedrich Peters took over the firm.

The company survived World War One by manufacturing utility vehicles and focussing on body repair. After WW1 Erdmann & Rossi specialized in designing and building bodies for luxury German and foreign automobiles, like Mercedes, Horch, Bentley and Rolls-Royce. The company also became the exclusive distributor of Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars in Germany.

During the 1920s and 1930s, many famous one-off designs were delivered to several Royal Household members, like for instance Prince Bernhard of The Netherlands and King Ghazi of Iraq. About 200 craftsmen manufactured 2 to 3 bodies in one week.

In 1933 the company took over the coachbuilding company Jos. Neuss in Berlin-Halensee. Friedrich Peters died in 1937 and his brother Richard Peters took over. The very last Erdmann & Rossi body was built in 1949 on the chassis of a Maybach SW 42. Since then the company only focusses on body repair.

One of the most spectacular cars I’ve ever seen in person is a ‘39 Mercedes 540K, but it isn’t the work of art the 500K Streamline is!

What's really amazing, onyx, is the loyalty of FR's monthly donors.

NinoFan - hasn't posted since 2009, got the zot

toddlintown - hasn't posted since 2008, got the zot

oceanperch - hasn't posted since 2005, got the zot

Yet they all continue to donate monthly.

I wish that Club for Growth or the NRA could get members with that kind of committment!!!
