Which one shall I have?

By TrevBatWCC    
Round the far side of Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes is the marina with lots of very expensive looking boats. These are just a few of them, moored alongside the Jetée Albert Edouard - I reckon you'd need several Lottery jackpot wins to buy one of these! One of the boats (see V3) had it's 'boot' opened up, displaying a smaller boat inside…a single Lottery jackpot win might just buy me that! Wink
Just heard on the news that violent storms hit this area of France last night, causing floods in Cannes, Nice and Antibes, killing at least sixteen people, with six missing Sad

Reminds me of a tv ad for an insurance company over here. The throttle on a luxury yacht jams open as they are heading into the marina. A collision with one of the moored boats is inevitable.The skipper asks the owner what he should do.
"Aim for the cheapest-looking" replied the owner...

If we're dreaming, lets dream big. But as for owning, far too expensive. Some lovely enticing shots though Trev.

Used to know some lads who 'summered' as deck hands down that way. A wonderful way to experience life 😆😆

Both of them, why have one when you can have two, besides you need a spare for when the other is in dry dock
