    thought people might like to add some strange or interesting tenders to this thread... cars, planes, submarines, hovercrafts...

    here's some not so interesting ones, but wouldn't mind finding out, or seeing some photos of the boats they belong to.

    Good idea!

    For all the interesting tenders this thread might generate, I suggest they be carried on this...

    Glad you showed that pic, Carl. My poor dialup connection had no chance of loading their web site.

    I just bought a pair of these for the boat. Here's some advice: learn to ride a Segway in a parking lot. NOT on a dock! :eek:

    Interesting Tenders - a retro option

    I've recently purchased a couple of retro tenders for a 1947 Trumpy I'm having restored. We’re trying to create a mid-20th century experience aboard – period music, period décor, period newspapers and magazines – so we wanted tenders that fit that post WWII aesthetic. For our shore tender, I found a 1952 Cadillac 7533x Imperial Limousine with coachwork by Derham, and I think she looks just perfect. We call her "The Derham," and she was originally handbuilt for Nelson Rockefeller. Like many limousines of the 1940s and 1950s, the car was upholstered with black tuck and roll leather in the chauffeur cabin, and with fine English wool in the passenger compartment. (In the 1940's, leather was not the luxury seating choice we consider it today. The wealthy sat on fine woven fabrics - the working man sat on cow.) The chauffeur bench was not adjustable - it was custom fitted at the Derham factory for your driver (good job security for the chauffeur - if you fired him you had to have a new car made). We found a 100 year old New York company that still had chauffeur uniform patterns from the 1940’s – so the look will be complete.

    For our harbor tender, I found a contemporary West System built electric launch by Budsin Boats in North Carolina. She’s silent, only 600 lb to crane aboard, and she eliminates the need to store combustible gasoline aboard for the dinghy. Like the Derham, I think she looks period correct for the yacht she will serve. I’m supposed to take delivery on our little launch this fall, and for her mission as tender to “Silver Swan”, we’ll christen her “Cygnet”.

    I really like LanaLanes’ idea of putting a pair of Segways aboard - do you think the company makes a retro version – maybe in varnished mahogany and bronze? :)

    No problemo Carl. YachtForums seems to be set up for 15 photos per page? Anyways, that turns out to be just inside what my dialup can handle in a reasonable time. 20 photos would be a choker.

    Segway

    I'm sure that at the least they'd be able to make hubcaps for the segways to match those on the Derham. Beautiful example. I think the only other one of that class I've seen is at the Auburn Museum.

    I ran across a rather sad update to the Trumpy "Silver Swan" restoration project:

    The owner will not be needing those interesting tenders now. He probably doesn't need the YachtForums user name either.

    Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust. And splendor to splinters... I'm getting as weepy as Silver Swan is leaky.

    Anybody know why she was so unceremoniously trashed? That's heartbreaking!

    She was in very poor condition sitting on land in a yard for several years. I would assume that the unpaid storage bill had mounted and the yard wanted her gone. There was an auction and not one bidder stepped forward. A Trumpy patron was given permission by the yard to remove some of the salvageable parts before she was broken up. These old wooden ladies are just getting to be cost prohibitive to restore and maintain. Reality is very heartbreaking sometimes.

    Really a shame. Especially as it looked as though she was to be part of a very special program. I loved "The Derham Land Tender" to go along with her. :(

    Anybody know why the restoration was derailed? Owner lose his passion, or money, or (God forbid) life? I see he has been inactive since October of '05.
