NAS Wadlow


This Ship's name is inspired by Robert Pershing Wadlow
who, at 8 feet 11 inches, was known as the tallest man in recorded
history. I do not personally know anyone taller.


In honor of tallness, we hereby christen it with SOMERVILLE TAP
WATER: the NAS WADLOW


(applause and heckling)


----


development:


Long, Tall and Heavy... Stogie threw together two matching tandem
frames and got some help from Nosepicker with welding at his fort
when SCUL's welding machine (Zeus) was out of commission between the
move from Fort Joy to Fort Tyler.



Wadlow is registered with BIKE INDEX
