    The Thames in London was in a similar state to Venice in the 1950s, I used to passenger on the Grenwich ferry as a youngster which was a paddle steamer. The stench as the paddles started from the churned up soup was almost enough to make you wretch, and people used to fish for eels in it.

    Switch it on and watch them scatter.
    I'd take that even if it were so worn out by now that it is held together with rusted on swarth. Just think of how beautiful of a yard art piece it would be. I Have a half mile road frontage I'm sure I could find a place for it.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    The biggest lathe I worked on had a six-foot swing and was set three feet into the concrete floor. We made extrusion dies for polymers out of different grades or stainless steel and titanium bar stock.
