    At work, if anything is ugly, we suggest the designer went to the Carver School of Design! :D

    It's got a Jules Vernian, Flash Gordian look about her with maybe a dose of Art Deco thrown in too. Very conceptual looking. Like the images of concept cars you see, but in the boat family.

    Words of wisdom. They can't make them ugly enough and she looks just fine through the bottom of a beer bottle.

    Ok, its butt ugly but I'll claim it {No associated comments on the driver please}. I'm told it has the same charm as an english bulldog {See previous request}. There are 3 or 4 of these floating around to the best of my knowledge. Here are a couple of the others. The green one has a nice stove and sink installed on either side just aft of the bunk.

    Ahhh, yes, who could miss the Quaker Oats factory along the river? I've done a lot of architectural photography in and around that town.

    HA! Quaker Oats!! My grandfather and father both worked there! I still hear stories 'bout that place. Good place to work for country folk.
