*Everglades is one of the busier inlets------ships, sports fisherman, cruising boats, pilot boats, tug boats, mega yachts to open skiffs. *You will see it all there. *It is a jumping off place to the Bahamas, but it is the entrance to one of the big yachting capitals. *Ft. Lauderdale is Annapolis on steroids.

The turbines were the 502, 551, 553, and the T-50. The 502 was used on a lot of GSE and those goofy remote controlled Navy ASW helicopters that sometimes made it back to the ship.

Glad you like it.* I realize it's way off topic, particularly when I end up putting it in the middle of a boating thread but sometimes it makes more sense to put it there than in OTDE.

Like railroads (another one of my interests), aviation companies that have been around for a long time have pretty fascinating histories, not just the airplanes themselves but the people who were involved in their creation.* This is particularly true in the "old days" when*what the companies did was more the result of individual effort and ingenuity than it is today.

And it's a very closed industry.* Most people, and the media in particular, don't understand aviation at all, why an airplane flies, how it's controlled, how it's made, how its systems work and why,*what factors influence the design, etc.* So there is some satisfaction on the part of most of us in the industry to be able to pass correct information on to people outside the industry*who are interested.

Here is a factoid coming from a project I am working on right this minute that some of you may find*interesting in that it is indicative*of the evolution of aviation.* Boeing has a standarized numbering system for*the fuselage sections of all*its flying vehicles be they airplanes or missiles.* The front end--- in a plane, the nose, flight deck, and expanding fuselage back to just aft of the forward passenger door--- is called the 41 Section.* In our metal airplanes like the 777, the 41 Section shell*is made up of thousands of part numbers.* These include skin panels, structural members like ribs, a bazillion rivets and other fasteners, and so on.* This just to create the hollow shell of the front end of the plane.

On the 787, the same 41 Section, the same hollow shell with all its*strenghening structural members, is just one part number.* It's just one piece.

It isn't an aluminum tug but it might be a petrified U-boat.
