    AC34 on Thursday? I’m jealous! 😉
    The TV coverage and Youtube video is jaw-dropping.

    I recommend this URL as a starting point:
    https://maps.google.com/maps?q=Schmidt+Ocean+Falkor+Ship&hl=en-US&ui=placepage&view=map&cid=17065604275538603296&t=m&z=17&iwloc=A
    Then drop the “peg man” onto the Falkor. This will give you a 9 level navigation strip on the top left. The newer version of Google Maps that is linked above does not have the level navigation.

    Those tools on the board look suspiciously like the Harbor Freight ones, and the two Wilton vises look like Chinese copies…tell me it ain’t so…the combo box/open wrenches seem to have had their brand name obscured, maybe because they should have been Snap On, but weren’t?

    Looks very cool, but I can’t figure out how to get to any of the “inside” views…note I have the “new” google maps version….which by the way, I am not all that happy with. The link from Kurt doesn’t work for me as I have no “peg man”…..any ideas?

  5. Gram Schweikert says:

    Ahhhh…..I just went to settings and changed to “classic maps”…..why oh why google do you make it so hard to love thee?

    Gram, it works fine with the new (still in beta I think) Google Maps version as well. Just follow Kurts link above and then click the “See inside” button/picture in the upper left corner. It sits there between “Street View” and “Photos” buttons/pictures.
