New Occupants of the Johnson Spot

Nereo Zane recently alerted us to the final demise of the Johnson - a large derelict boat which sat on the ground near the GSVVM for many years.
The spot where she sat for what seemed like forever, has been cleared and now is the storage space for some clean, new sailboats. Looking at the photo that Nereo has furnished us with, you can see that somebody has taken to posting announcements on a small shed-like building adjacent to the spot.

But I can't help but wonder if at some point a club member might "enjoy a little more wine than usual" and stumble out there with a poster and a nail gun, only to mistakenly post their announcement on some poor guys new sailboat.

To view photos of the Johnson, see my post from February 22nd, 2010.

Large ships go, large ships come. There is a new NGC TV documentary about Costa Serena, the largest luxury megaship that cruises out of Venice.

"Diaries of a luxury ship" has six 45 minute parts, presenting the crew-passenger interaction during one-week Levante cruises.

Maybe it's interesting to gondoliers from a customer service point of view, although Venezia itself is seldom seen in the footage.

Kind regards: Tamas Feher from Hungary.

I will miss Johnson. It was realy a monument. Last october it was still there. The shortest way by coming from the lagon for next convenience.
