Epic 18 shot. Must have been a great ride! I have an 18 waiting for Huntington Lake in the High Sierras to fill back up someday. Awesome boat!

One of two gigantic Roman-era shipwrecks in Lake Nemi, south of Rome. This 200-foot ship was essentially a floating palace built for Emperor Caligula. The ships were scuttled about the time Caligula was murdered by his own guards, in 41 AD.

Over the centuries there were several failed attempts to raise the ships. In the 1920s, Benito Mussolini decided to drain the lake. Then the ships were stabilized and dragged to a flat spot south of the lake (likely where the ships were built). There, a huge pavillion housed the ships and all the treasures they contained.

In 1944 the Nazis occupied Italy. As they were being chased out by the Allies, somebody set fire to the ships. Nobody took responsibility for the fire: the Allies blamed the Nazis, and the Nazis blamed the Allies. Ultimately, it doesn't matter. Within hours, the ships were gone forever...
