I just never get tired of looking at pictures of "Trizilla", the BMW Oracle racing Trimaran which may compete in the next America's Cup (depending on how the lawsuits sort themselves out, and hence the rules which will be used for the design of the boats).  Whether it ever races anything or not, it is a wonderful creation.  I really really really want to ride on it, a mini-life-goal :)
