According to news reports a $4.5 billion, 30-meter yacht has been built in Malaysia. Billion with a B. That's ten times more expensive than Roman Abramovich's Eclipse but who's counting?
When I arrived at the PMY office in midtown Manhattan last Thursday, I assumed it would be like every other day in the office. A little writing, some research, some editing…all various tasks expected of an editorial intern, and all things I enjoy doing.
This past weekend, I went home to Wisconsin. And it was fantastic—There was grilling and beer and boats.
On Sunday, I spent some time in Fish Creek, Wisconsin. It's been a few years since I've visited, but I used to spend weeks there in the summer with my cousin and my grandpa. And not much has changed.
It sure was. About thirty boats and probably 100 people chowing down on mahi and Bimini bread, soaking in the sun, soaking in the water, soaking in the Kalik. You name it, and somebody probably soaked in it in Bimini this past weekend.
A timeless icon, John Wayne left a legacy in American culture and society that remains today...Both on land and sea.
His yacht, the Wild Goose, is currently owned by Hornblower Cruises in Newport Beach, California.
Wayne purchased the vessel in 1962 and refurbished it as a yacht, as it was once a World War II minesweeper.
The vessel has recently been nominated for a place on the National Register of Historic Places, an award meant to recognize places with significance and encourage preservation.
