    Lord knows, Andy, but it looks like a real monster of a boat. It's got shades of the Typhoon around the stern area, by the looks of things.

    It certainly would have been huge, Andy... I believe the original design goes back to the end if WW1, then it was recalled again in the '50s. Maybe thankfully for us, it was another design that never made it off the drawing board.
