There’s a yacht in the harbour here with it’s own helicopter!

Called the “Lady Christine” of Georgetown, Cayman Islands, my internet research says she was built by Oceanco and is now owned by Irvine Laidlaw.

Yeah, neat boat.

I went near it yesterday while coming back from fishing. I didn’t notice the chopper. Did it say how much it was worth? And is that Laidlaw from the company?
