Default Circles and Triangles

I went to the Boat Show in Toronto today. When I saw these wheels I though of this challenge. Its all circles and triangles. In the pic that follows again when I saw all those round gauges and that steering wheel I thought of circles.

Selvin, Im not a boat person. I went to the show to see all the other stuff -- the people that sell everything else like glue or Sham Wow rags. I ended up buying Doris's Dips in 7 flavors, a pair of gloves and a couple beer. In this case I enjoyed the Lamborghini which was the inspiration for the paint job on the large boat behind it. The shot of the dashboard is from the boat. The other toy I liked to see was the Bombardier Spyder. Its a Batman style 3wheeled motorcycle selling for an inflated overprice of $35,000 CDN. You can see a pic of this in the Transportation thread. Unfortunately the car here was surrounded by rope and it had 2 large signs sitting against the side of the body, one covering the front wheel. Here are the other shots I could get.

That console looks more like the panel in a fighter jet! Why does one need all those gauges in a boat? Are there more than one engine?

Great shots.

I think there were 2 engines. They looked like V8's. The boat and car were the first exhibit you saw when you entered the building. It was huge and a one of a kind selling for a few more bucks than I had in my pocket at the time. Here is a size as shot of the gauges. The 6 on the right are -- from the top OIL, WATER and FUEL. And they duplicate each other. The two large ones on the left top also look like duplicates of each other and I imagine the same for most of the others.

Yup!

And more than meets the challenge.
