Which is why I'm hot on the tanker idea (which I brought up btw). In the age of
global warming, one profit center will be ferrying refugees off islands that
are sinking..... Or using the tankers as construction bases to build
floating/underwater communities for these people. Since most people through
history don't move much, if something happens, they just build on top of the
wreckage, I predict that global warming will foster the beginning of the
colonization of the oceans. Being the architects and contractors of this new
fronteir could be quite profitable.

James, have you any info on the current market prices for slightly used surplus
