Groot Beer

Groot Beer - Dutch for Great Bear
I'm reading The Shipping News and the sleepy little fishing village of Killick-Claw gets a visit from a very fancy sailing yacht, Hitler's own sailboat, if the stories are to be believed. The description of the boat is extremely detailed, which makes me think there might be such a boat floating around in the real world, and there is. Didn't belong to Hitler, not sure if Hitler even knew of it, but it is a World War 2 artifact, constructed in Holland, and it is very fancy. Witness the wood carving above the cabin entrance.


The story, or at least one version of it, can be found here.
