So when you live in a city built on islands you don't drive a car, you drive a boat, right. And when you come home in your boat, where do you park it....why, in the garage of course!

Take a look at this photo - it is a boat garage that I came across whilst wandering around Venice one day.

I guess the straps are lowered, the boat glides in and then it is raised up out of the water - ingenious!

Anyone know more about it? Let me know.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
