Show Your Sub @ TYC

sub_001

A bit late, as always, but just in time to show you some of the submarines that are on show right now at Tradewinds Yacht Club. I guess today was the last day of the show but if you wanna see them live who am I to hold you back?

But now, honestly, don’t you find submarines boring? Well, I do. They mostly do look all the same, like badly missshaped soap bars and have the sex-appeal of mindless dildos.

Yes, of course are submarines boats too. It’s already evident in the name u-boat. In so far it’s a good idea by the TYC guys to organize a boat show particularly for subs. I still don’t like them. They just can’t compare with a nice sailyacht, period!

The builders on exhibition – some of them doubtlessly very talented – are like no-names in the sailing community so I won’t pester you with their names. If you’re in the market for a new subby (really?) you should check the Market Place, I guess you’ll find thousands.

I gotta say the most interesting submarines on show are the more surreal ones. Let them German WW2 boats be super realistic, they can’t even come close to a total bullshit funmobile like my girl Carrah Rossini’s steampunk inspired blimp/sub crossbreeds.

Nice idea to include supply lines for electricity n stuff to the moored boat.

Useless but funny display model of a submarine in a warf.

Cool application for this little sub ona Canadian navy ship.

sub_010

Many of the smaller fun boats are funny.

sub_011

Submarine or marine habitat, that’s the question.

sub_012

Jeez, wotz dat?

sub_013

Miniature model of the world’s most famoustest submarine ever: Capt’n Nemo’s Nautilus

sub_014

Of course Arcadia Asylum Alej made a u-boat too. For when you wanna party with the merfolk in Fanci’s Deep.

sub_017

The two above are clearly inspired by Verne’s steampunk stories as well.

sub_018

Fukn Japanese always striving for perfection and overdoing it. A submarine aircraft carrier???

sub_019

The typical whimsiness of Carrah Rossini.

sub_020

My fave Carrah airship is this blimp/submarine mix.

sub_021

This old German WW2 boat has seen better times.

sub_022

All in all I gotta say the show was not for me. Although there were many many boats on display, it was too militaristic and, as I said earlier, they’re basically all the same.

Ok, as far as the purpose of this protrusion goes, I refuse to think about it. OUCH!
