    A modern interpretation of the tall ship transoms of centuries ago?

    I took this picture as I crossed the bridge just before nightfall tonight.
    It shows on the left side runabout boats with 60hp outboards that are used for the tourist, and on the other side is the fishing boats.
    The fishing boat in the middle is heading out to the harbor which go out one after the other that all have their wife's on the bow of each with a barge pole to push off from hitting other boats in the crowded boat regions.

    The other picture is taken from my bedroom window shows the harbor entrance and a small part of the ouster farm with a couple of runabouts speeding by.

    Thanks for sharing your pictures, myark. What is that plant on the right side in the distance?

    This piece of art is actually a 100 m³/h pumping station that brings the water to the next level.

    Its great how imagination can transform a humble pump function into art, well done the architect and well done the owner and/or local authority for having the good sense (and budget) to do it. And thanks to Angelique for posting.

    interesting to think of this in terms of the value of the goods at the point of transport. As it becomes a plank in their marketing, the means of transport adds value to the product.

    Great idea. The chocolate will have its own niche and command a high price.

    There are thousands of plants every were so I would not have a clue what it is as the picture below shows looking at the other side window of my apartment bedroom other factories near by.
    One time looking out my window a huge chemical tank blew up near by and the flames are above a 20 story building and looked like a atom bomb that burnt all day, the locals carried on if nothing happed.

    But the A5 is also like a flying speedboat; the amphibious craft doesn’t just take off and land on water, but it also handles like a jetski in the drink. On the water, you can carve corners with ease.

    The FAA doesn’t seem too concerned at the prospect of hundreds of newbie pilots flying these vehicles around willy-nilly and have somewhere between $189,000 to $250,000 to spend on an A5, and have a huge garage, your dreams of flying your own amphibious toy.

    They are regulated, and the pilots licensed.
    What are you talking about!

    Why are you promoting silly hysteria?

    This category of aircraft has been around for at least 20 years, IIRC.

    What you said doesn't even follow the paid ad article you referenced.

    Chill out mate

    Did you not read the link ? ....... http://www.wired.com/2015/09/like-fl...icon-a5-plane/

    Also they hope to have 100 airplanes shipped by the end of 2016 and around 550 A5s in the land, sea, and air by the end of 2017.

    The A5 is 23 feet long, which is about the size of a ski boat, according to Hawkins. It has wings that fold back so you can hitch it to your trailer for a trip to the lake

    Icon also has more than 1,500 preorders to fulfill. If you order an A5 today, you’ll likely have to wait till 2018 to get it. Think of it as a holding pattern. Or a mid-air hover.

    So much for your 20 years being around when none are on the market untill 2016 ?

    Why are you promoting silly hysteria ?
