Flickr Mod & Vintage Boat finds

These pics were found on Flickr using combinations of the words "boat, 50's, mod, 60's, Chris-Craft."
Unknown boat and location - Japan perhaps? Fantastic architecture and use of mod chairs.
I'm digging this restored yellow Chris-Craft. It even has a matching trailer!
A 60's pic - on a boat somewhere in Germany. Could this woman be more fabulous? I want this outfit.
A 70's Boat galley. Awesome mod yellow countertops, butcher block, and chrome grab rail!
And last but not least, your "cute" fix for the day: Penelope the Pug gets a boat ride in Maryland for her 3rd birthday.

These are hilarious. That orange, yellow, and brown print fabric is sooo 70s. I die!

Also, that pug is un.freaking.believable. Is she yours? I'm so in love!

K - Penelope really is too adorable, isn't she? She isn't mine, I found her on a Flickr search. Although, my future mother-in-law has the cutest pug I've ever seen, with the best little clownlike personality. I downloaded a few more pics of Penelope. When I post those, I'll find the link to the Flickr series.

Weird. I just found this blog. Penelope is my pug. You can find other pictures of her here.

The boat at the top is in Tokyo, it is the water bus that you can take from Asakusa to Odaiba. I have taken this boat several times when I have been in Tokyo and it's amazing, it is almost completely glass and when all of the neon is lit up on a night it's an amazing ride, especially as you pass under Rainbow Bridge.

The Verner Panton chairs look awesome and they match the 60's space age look of the boat.
You can hire the bus for parties and it has a light up dance floor.... I hope to do this sometime .
