I just wrote “5.” but then I saw what was in the harbor today:


Pride of Baltimore II , as seen from Pioneer


as seen with the Bayonne in the background…


and Gorch Fock II , docked in Brooklyn.

USCG barque Eagle, considered a Gorch Fock class barque and originally called Horst Wessel, docked right across the river in Manhattan. Gorch Fock, Eagle, and Peking . . . all built by Blohm and Voss.  Check a shoreview from another blog here.

Glad I went down to the water today.
