 “According to a new survey, 90% of men say their lover is also their best friend. Which is really kind of disturbing when you consider man’s best friend is his dog.”

The Sinking Boat

     Two brothers who were twins grew up in the same town and it seemed that good and bad things always seemed to happen to them both on the same day.  Joe had never been married, but was the once proud owner of a boat that had become rather dilapidated lately.  John, on the other hand, had been married for some time, but his wife became ill and had just died.  The coincidence of having bad things happen to each of them at the same time continued as Joe’s boat sank on the very same day.

    Joe happened to be walking downtown a few days later and met a kindly old woman who mistakenly thought that he was his brother John.  She had just heard about the death of John’s wife and said to him, “I’m very sorry to hear about your great loss.  You must feel terrible.”

    Joe, thinking she had heard of his sunken boat said: “Not really!  The fact is, I’m sort of glad to be rid of her.  She was just becoming a rotten old thing from the beginning.... 

EDITED - THIS IS A FAMILY FRIENDLY SITE.

  Where upon the old woman just fainted and John was just able to catch her before she hit the ground.  He thought she seemed overly distraught over the loss just a boat.

That is SO-O incomprehensible!  Is it a quote from Pirates of the Caribbean?  Or Game of Thrones?

And they certainly have got that galleon right :default_wallbash:

Apparently this trick defies the laws of physics - when they tried to do it for the film they had to stick the sword through the sail into a hefty baulk of timber, and then Doug Fairbanks slid down slitting the sail in two. Without the piece of timber it just didn't work.

“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
