Default The calypso, an unlikely woodworking project

Jacques Cousteau's Calypso Heads to Shipyard


I hope they are able to rebuild her. I have many a fond memory of watching her exploratory trips when I was younger. I don't know what percentage of her present structure can be saved, but maybe the spirit will remain.
