Awesome! I’m traveling the south of France and Spain this summer and I never expected to see so many amazing yachts here. Seems to dwarf the Carribean cruising season, although there are some major ports in the Carribean I haven’t visited. Walked the docks
I really do love the United States Steel stripe. [Example](http://bridgedeck.org/images/GreatLakes/Roger-Blough-1.jpg)

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that she’s a victory ship. Edit: Well that’s confusing, there is a victory ship named SS American Victory, but this one isn’t it. Like /u/irishjihad already mentioned, she was previously named USS Neshanic and

Thanks! I spend a lot of time in Duluth and Superior. I like to kayak in the harbor and always have a camera with me. This photo was from the first weekend in May when we had a couple of gorgeous days.

Guessing you were ROTC then? I can understand; it’s not for everybody, but I’m absolutely in love with it. Thanks, can’t wait to be home. Neither are y’all yanks, made a lot of new friends.. (don’t mind the username, I’m a sox fan). Haha

I knew someone with a very large yacht which had a crew of 6. Almost all of them were previous mariners with some kind of military association. 4 out of the 6 were in the Merchant Marines, one was Navy, prior to getting work
Maersk “something R” I used to be an officer on those. Wonderful ships. The crane looks like they are preparing to discharge.

There was a Chinese dating/game show where a girl famously said she would rather cry in a BMW than be happy on the back of a bicycle. You two could get along great! Sure money can lead to happiness, but to exchange material wealth
I seem to remember that her insurers will not allow her to reach max speed, especially for a race. Pity about MCA requirements weighing her down so much. full steel frames in a purely composite boat? Hello FAA/Starship all over again. How do people
The Tregurtha carries coal as her primary cargo, but other lakers carry cement, limestone, grain, and iron ore. The largest inland harbor in the world is the twin ports of Duluth, MN and Superior, Wis. From this port the bulk carrying lakers depart with
I could live with that. I’m used to schooners myself. A friend and I, though, are trying to buy a brigantine and kit her out as a proper Georgian-era King’s ship. We want to do long-term sail training trips. Probably won’t come to fruition,
Wood is used for the cargo deck because it has more friction(vs steel non-skid). Cargo on this type of OSV, colloquially a “crew change boat”, is mainly 10-20ft containers with food and baggage for a rig/platform and the passengers being exchanged. There can also
It probably runs on marine diesel oil (mdo), on .5 at port and 4 metric tons at sea. Lets assume it spends 75% of the year at anchor the rest under way. So, 273 days anchored/moored that’s 136 metric tons at 1050 per metric
