I Love the chopper on there but that thing has to be one hard chunk of metal to land on that boat. and 71 is nothing id Love to have that kind of weather here... its been close to 100 with high humidity here for about a week now. and here we are talking about the weather :D

Our weather is just as nice, and we haven't been "discovered".
That's the best part.

Just back from vacation on the Mediterranean Sea we saw HUNDREDS of mega yachts along the Cote d'Azur. Many with helicopters. Must be nice to be that affluent!

Here is a few in Genoa, Italy.

Lots in Monaco.

How does one launch that helicopter? It looks like the rotor swing puts it within feet of the uppermost deck, if not overlapping.

Oh hay, I found out how you do it... on that exact yacht, even!

It's easy, really. Just 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get a 20 million dollar yacht with a dinghy so large it requires its own dinghy
Step 2: Put on your brown pants
Step 3: Pray pray pray pray pray
