Steampunk experience

Post by Witness » Mon Jun 30, 2014 2:14 am

Took the boat on lake Léman (or lake Geneva, as they call it in Geneva…), a bit over 3 hours for the trip. Interesting vintage machinery, alas now hidden behind some plexiglass shielding for "security reasons" (ugh!), which wasen't the case ~ 10 years ago.
No propeller, waterwheels. I enjoyed their sound shuffling the water, a slightly irregular progress of the ship, and the deep rumble of the motor.

And they serve tolerable beer.

worth a trip if you have a few hours after Lexington and Concord http://crmi.org/
If it's good enough for Nelson, it's quite good enough for me.
