Downed Light Plane Spotted *On* Fla Hiway

Driving on I-75 north of Sarasota, we noticed a traffic tie up -- then we saw a helicopter hovering in the distance, then fire trucks: 1, 2, 3, 4, and a CRANE? The crane was hoisting a low-wing Cessna-type single-engine plane off the grass between northbound and southbound lanes!

We don't see that every day. Two local TV trucks covered the incident. We hope no one was hurt!

Ah... the infinite variety of boats... Hard to believe how many variations they embody! Made in Europe, South Africa, Asia, and the Americas of course: New England, Florida, California, etc. Many hull sizes and body types, now with equipment unimaginable to the "old salts" of olden days: Watermakers! Self-steering! Solar cells! Wind generators! We're looking at them in Florida, in Georgia too, as well as Maryland. We might go see some in Virginia as well. Wish us luck to get a good one
