In the land of The BIG boats

Travelling south today we ended up going outside from Lake Worth to Port Everglades,  the Ft Lauderdale area.  The story today is:  how about these big boats, who owns them, what size are they.

Took several pictures,

First one is a huge sail boat that was at the Rybovich Superyacht Marina,  We anchored just off their property in Lake Worth.

this is a two masted sailboat about 200 feet long.  Sorry we did not get any closer

After a nice long ride down the Atlantic Ocean,  skipping 21 bridges that we would have either had to open on request or get there at the right time of the opening schedule, we ended up coming into Port Everglades.

PE is a major port and here is one of the oil tankers that was coming out as we were going in.

There was about 100 feet of separation between us and them
However this is a commercial boat.  As we started up the river to the mooring field we came across a magnificent ship that has a most interesting feature.  The side of the ship opens up so you can access all your water toys,  like ski boats, jet skies, etc
That is enough of big boats for now. We will be here for a couple of days to hang out with Mark and Sue on Merlin.  Then on to Miami and Coconut Grove mooring field
