Sublime / Ridiculous

20090611_archimedes_starboard

Archimedes off my starboard bow. One of the 100 largest motor yachts in the world, she’s at anchor in Mannion Bay, Bowen Island BC.

Madsu and I sailed by and took a couple of quick shots, but didn’t want to be rubber-necking-tourists.

We’re far too classy for that.

A few quick comparisons:

  • LOA:  Madsu, 22 feet.  Archimedes, 222.3 feet
  • Power: Madsu, one, 9.9 horsepower gas engine   Archimedes, two, 2,000 horse power diesel engines
  • Fuel tank: Madsu, 22 litres.  Archimedes, 171,000 litres.
  • Crew: Madsu, 1.  Archimedes, 16
