While folks were reporting in from all over the country this weekend. Photo’s were flowing in from fellow Woody Boater Chad Durren in Monico.. Yup, home of the late Grace Kelly and home to the so rich that they don’t know they are rich. As Chad put it. ‘I believe Monte Carlo is the wealthiest place on earth. I feel like Larry the Cable Guy around here.” Here is Chads report.
Monte Carlo – Chad Durren reporting in.
I’m here doing an event and I had the morning off. I scheduled a tour of Monaco Boat Services, the largest Riva dealer in the world. While the restoration of the vintage Rivas takes place in Sarnico, Italy, Monte Carlo is the location of the historic “tunnel” or cave that Carlo had carved into the side of the mountain to store the wooden boats. Today, the tunnel is used for repair and dry dock storage for private owners (and their cars). Simply drive your Ferrari into the cave, pull your Riva off the shelf, and go for spin.
The area in front of the MBS is very active right now as the parking lot will be used as a paddock for the upcoming Grand Prix.
VERY COOL stuff.
