I’ve not used this title since May. But Mary K. Adella begs some well-deserved attention.
At this site, Ken Brockway, owner and builder, has thoroughly documented the creation of his vessel. The only thing I didn’t find was the origin of the steamer’s name. Thank for the site, Ken; it could serve as an inspiration for someone looking to take on a project for several years. Small craft maybe, but big accomplishment.
Earlier in September, I caught this foto of William H working over near the Tappan Zee Bridge. For more, click here and scroll about 3/4 through, enjoying all the other survey boats along the way.
Last one, I looked long and hard at the boat name on this white fiberglass stern–HOTel cORAL esSEX–and just didn’t get it. It didn’t work for me; I thought it was the name of a place or a song.
Win a few, lose a few …. oh well. I suppose whoever writes this on a boat doesn’t get it either.
