    There is a thread on the boats from JAWS.
    I don't see one for the boats used in the James Bond Movies.
    Anyone know where some of the 007 movie boats are today?

    Sea Shadow was the boat used in Tomorrow never Dies. It was built by Lockeed to test stealth and MHD Propulsor drive. It was latter used to test Swath technology. It sat for many years In the bay outside San Francisco with the rest of the mothball fleet. As of a few years ago it was up for sale to any Museum that met the sale criteria . Steve

    The boat that leaped the bad guys was a Glastron 17--it actually holds the guiness book of records for a boat jump ---well it did.

    My mate had one that we ski'd with daily at the time. I remember driving it while humming the Bond Theme da da --da da -da da da.

    Serves you right you shouldn't drink cdm you find in a car park,who knows what was in there. Maybe cialis?

    Thats what every one said. I dont see the problem --one mans junk is another mans gold.

    I did sniff at it firs,t then a little sip , then a bigger sip and there you go!!!

    Just glad I got to it before the Monkeys did.

    A friend threw away 4 boxes of 2.6 welding rods ,--in plastic,-- sealed.

    I took them home --he was convinced the were too old.

    Ive found fuel and even out of date tinned food discarded by yachties.

    I buy 2 for one wine at the whole sale at a fraction of the cost because it has reached sell by.

    Don't people pay 10,000 dollar for a vintage wine?

    I didn't know they were still touring, they never even played their own instruments so I don't know how-one of them died not too long ago I think.
    Do they still have that black chev van with stripes and go around pitying fools?

    It was that silly short guy shaking the tambourine, think Davey Jones was his name.
    Read somewhere this monkey (no relation to me - my avatar will clearly show me as a decent fashionable baboon) had been riding around on a horse, then complain of chest pains and had a heart attack later and cashed in his chips so to speak :eek:

    Oh you're thinking of the tambourine man,maybe he did play that and he must have been good at it-I heard a song on the radio about him today.
    That is a nice picture,have you any from the side-perhaps with a pompadour?
    Must be quite handsome with Elvis sideburns.

    Creme de menthe, Hoyt-I'd be suspicious of it anyways-even if store bought.
    Have a batch of root beer schnapps on the go,I make my own liquers and ciders,wonder if I could ad cialis to my root beer and market it in Australia.
