Two divers are saying that they came to the surface during a dive trip three miles off Key Biscayne this week and their dive boat was ... gone. They hung on to a fishing buoy for two hours until they were picked up by a passing yacht, No Compromise.
This is is Jeremy Walker, a New Zealand fisherman who hauled in this 671-pound bluefin tuna earlier this week. The fish would have brought in an estimated $80,000 at market, had Mr. Walker and his chums decided to sell it. Instead, they ate it.
It is with a heavy heart that I write this blog. As of today, August 24th, 2011, my dreams of flying through the air with a water-powered jetpack strapped to my back have been derailed. Jetlev apparently wasn't ready for me. I'd guess they're making some tweaks after that Jetpack fail video at the San Diego Boat Show went viral. Not a good look for them at all.
It looks like it's really gonna happen you guys. A few weeks ago I blogged about that dude's epic, live-TV fail using the Jetlev R200 water-powered Jetpack and I asked PMY's readers to come through and get me one.
And just two short weeks later ... none of my readers have yet to respond.
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?
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.
Welp, I’m shipping off for Bimini tomorrow for The PMY Yacht Club Rendezvous at the Bimini Sands Resort. The party starts on the 1st and goes through the Fourth of July, otherwise known as The Best Holiday of the Year Hands Down. Frankly I’m a little torn about being abroad on America’s birthday, but I’ll be acting so damn American to make up for it that it’ll make your face hurt*, so everything should even out.
