Ugo Conti's spider boat, the Proteus, goes for a spin on the bay. The boat made it's public debut yesterday, unfortunately I did not get to see it. Read more about Spidey at SFGate or Sailing Anarchy. Pics here.
"Octopus" (Is it just me or am I in a James Bond movie?) has two helicopters with a hanger deck, seven boats, a submarine and a remote-controlled vehicle for crawling on the ocean floor.It must be nice to be mega-rich, but I don't see the thrill of owning a private ocean liner. I would rather have a fleet of different dinghies and a wooden schooner.
