Yacht Lotosland, 205 feet, owned by Col. Edward Andrew Deeds.  This was the first private yacht to carry a pipe organ and a seaplane.  The seaplane was raised and lowered by a hoist, clearly visible.  Deeds was head of NCR (National Cash Register) and founded DELCO (Dayton Engineering Laboratories Company.)  DELCO was later acquired by General Motors.
