Your boat on Google Earth

It seems that google have made a big update to the google earth imagery, enough so that I can see our boat clearly on its trailer!

Can you see yours?

Ha, just cant please some people google earth has to be the best thing I have played with on a PC for years, its amazing.

Go visit San Diago harbour and look at the US Navy in dock, or Pima Airforce
Base and see all the bombers chopped us for the old USSR to check up on. OR, try finding apolo19 ... its awesome, spent hours I have exploring the world.

For those in Portsmouth go look at the tower ... sort gives the date away.

It's interesting that the tower is almost finished, yet there is no sign of Clarence Marina. Work started on the marina and the tower in 2001.

Wierdest thing I've spotted so far is that you can make out the outline of the wreck of HMS Hood in the southern entrance to Portland harbour...!

Are you guys using the free version or the paid up version, as I can't zoom in enough to see my boat, in fact you cant see Falmouth.
