Yup. There should have also been pads on the sides of the tug to steady itself into the notch. From what I’ve heard though Bludworth’s had a nasty tendency for disconnecting in heavy seas, whereby the tug’s bow would get hung up along the

Good looking boat if you like the in-your-face stealth fighter thing. These boats from Wally have spawned a whole series of imitators which all have the same plumb bow and deep forefoot. It’s an unfortunate defect. In any serious sea she will have to
At least that many, I am unsure what the ratio of 20ft : 40ft containers is on a modern voyage but from looking at a lot of photos it seems that 40ft containers are the most popular nowadays. 20ft containers can be moved on
For the Curious this is a 142 meter (or 466ft) Trawler\Factory ship with an 18 meter (59ft) beam. Most recently known as *Abel Tasman* it can drag a 300 meter long net with an opening of 80 by 35 Meters (reportedly fitted with an

> … we were in a bizarre and beautiful situation. It was a cool moment … you do feel like a giant, striding along a vast ocean. Thank you. That’s exactly the sort of thing I was hoping for. I took a short trip
I wish I could understand sailing. Friends have told me, “It’s really easy! Think of the sail as a wing!” (I served in military aviation.) And I love sailboats, aesthetically. But that doesn’t tell me how to translate that “wing” thing into making the
Kind of interesting when considered at one point in time the boat was slated to be a part of a maritime museum in Southport NC.

Those sails are set absolutely spot on. In so many pictures you see poorly set sails, jibs luffing, stretched and baggy at the foot, or all set wrong. This just looks perfect. That flying jib up there. So beautiful.
My grandfather and I put our 19′ catboat on a sandbar in Florida. A guy in a dinghy with an outboard tried to pull us off but couldn’t put his engine down. Then a guy in a Hinckley came and pulled us off the
Well, I’m not from there, my fiance is, so I don’t really know much about the “islandness” of P.E.I., but the first two reasons are spot on! I’ve seen so many people vacation to P.E.I. and end up having to hitchhike off the island
Jeez man, it’s been 25 years since I seen her. Small and bouncy if I recall. What I most recall was being out with a group that didn’t have a clue, and their negativity rising with the bad weather. Hope it works for ya.
The difficulty comes from combining the three exposures when there are moving elements in the photo. In this case there were ripples in the water, so the the three HDR exposures all had different versions of what the water looked like, and the colors
Those icebreakers that are painted red for high visibility in the most extreme polar ice conditions. The Russian [Arktika class icebreakers](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arktika-class_icebreaker) are painted mostly red on their superstructures, while the American [USCGC Healy](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USCGC_Healy) has a mostly red painted hull. Interesting that the Aurora Australis

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)
Maaaaaaan, the day trip must be annoying as shit. Where I live we have the fastest ro-ro in the world, the longest trip is done in 2:12hs. also, the shortest trip takes 3hs. on the slow boat, it is really slow, I can’t stand
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

You should shop around.

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.
