Andy's Angles: The Princess

Today, it's a couple from the archives.

Donald Trump has been in the headlines, every day, since he announced a bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

Back in the late 80's, I happened to be at Baltimore's Inner Harbor when the Trump Princess came for a visit.  That's it in the lower right of the bottom photo.

Believe me, the pictures didn't do it justice.  Big.  Immaculate.  Gleaming white.  Polished metal.  Awe inspiring.

Say what you want about the man and his presidential aspirations, but he knew how to run a clean yacht.  The New York Times says Trump bought she yacht from the Sultan of Brunei in 1987 for $30 million.  It was sold in 1991, to an Arab prince, for $20 million.  The Trump Princess is now known as the Kingdom 5KR.
