I’ll start this post with the foto of Pelicano 1 below to situate it.  The location is Niteroi, more specifically Ponta D’Areia, and the Maua Jurong shipyard, founded in 1845,  marked by the bow of the tanker in the background.   You may have seen the Maua shipyard fotos in the background of this post a few weeks back.   Currently, Maua is owned by Synergy.

This post gets closer to the shipyard, but first, notice the ruined building off the bow of Far Swift–a pointed tower at each end–in the background partway up the slope and three-fouths the way to the right.  Click here for a close-up.  Its the now-abandoned mansion once owned by the former owners of the shipyard and a possible location for a possible future museum of Brazilian shipbuilding.

Starting at the opposite end of the shipyard, it’s Anita Garibaldiunder construction.
