Mr Smith was intrigued to read how one ex-pat Scot has played his part in preserving a unqiue part of American political history.

"A SCOTS millionaire has shelled out £1.5million for a historic yacht once used by American presidents including JFK. Frank Lynch, boss of the old Glasgow Apollo, bought the Innisfail for £770,000 then spent the same sum restoring it. The 68-year-old plans to lease the 92ft vessel used by John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Richard Nixon, Harry S. Truman and Dwight Eisenhower to wealthy tourists."

That's dedication for you and a pretty big investment in helping retain a piece of American political history.
