Lifeboats are great and all. If your regular ship is sinking, a lifeboat is what you NEED. But could they be better? Could they be more? Could they have suspension in the seats and be impossible to capsize? The Shannon is a boat built by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution that is a Batman’s utility belt of…
Somebody on YouTube has cut a clip show of what sure look like some interesting car engines being used to power boats. The speed is impressive, the sounds are downright evil.
If there’s one thing I know about Australia, it’s that if something has a motor, someone will find a way to hoon it, and then someone else will find a way to complain about it. Such is the fate of what the Aussies call “tinny bashing:” hilarious acts of speed and spray. It’s like dank wheelies for boats, bro.
Coming In Hot, a massive powerboat worth at least $100,000, lived up to its namesake at about 2:00 a.m. Sunday on the Lake Of The Ozarks when it caught air and crashed onto a lakefront lawn. The driver was allegedly intoxicated and amazingly, uninjured.

The Toyota Ponam-31 is the first entry into a "new class" of boats the company is calling "Sports Utility Cruisers." Looks like a regular-old power cruiser to me, but that said, it is a rather handsome vessel with a lot of cool tech.
What a pain in the ass owning six boats is, amirite my billionaire brothers? Part of that problem might be about to go away for a lucky few– German shipwright shop Kormaran is cooking up a rocket ship for the water that can cycle through six distinct setups on the fly.
The biblical downpour that's dumped on Phoenix, Arizona this week has destroyed property and even been lethal. But I guess if you've got a jet ski and you live in the desert, you have to take every chance you can get to make some wake.
Jessie the dog was just hangin' out in the bed of owner Paul Picolet's Ford F-250 this weekend when it up and rolled into the Chewuch River. The dog decided against swimming, so Okanogan County's Swiftwater Rescue Team was deployed to pluck the pup and carry it to safety.
Boats are good at being in water, I'm told. But when two Nantucket men were thrown overboard from their 26-foot "pleasure boat" three years ago, they never expected to see her again. Until the boat was found — three years and 3,500 nautical miles later.
In three months between 1910 and 1911, the plane you see here became the first ever to take off from and land on runways aboard the USS Birmingham and USS Pennsylvania carriers, respectively. Recently, photos from both experiments were uncovered.

We have to say, when it comes to Soviet military hardware, we've got what most would consider more than a passing familiarity, given our childhood obsession with books on WWII-present planes, boats, tanks and other various and sundry killng machines, not to mention a pubescent summer spent devouring the Tom Clancy…
We could so use some comfy chairs, and if BMW/Rolls Royce wants to make the Jalopnik Team each a chair for us to use while we sit at our computers, and in the spirit of cross-branding between the erstwhile units of Rolls-Royce, the BMW division and the builder of marine turbines and aero engines would so be our newest…
