After a number of “misfires” this past week, I’ve made some changes. To inaugurate these new protocols, I’m pleased to share photos you’ve sent in. First, from Great Lakes Mariner, a few photos of Cheyenne in her new Lake Michigan waters.  These photos were taken in Manitowoc, which some of you will recognize from the […]

From KP, Dace getting her upper wheelhouse . . . over 10 years ago. From a Great Lakes Mariner, the oldest working ship on […]

Many thanks to Phil Little, who took these from his socially-distanced perch high atop the Weehawken cliff . . .  I had thought to go out, but I didn’t want to get swarmed by “social-approachers.”  An alternative title here could be “Comfort Departs.”  I like the blue/white sign on the building off the starboard side […]

75 was in Paris, so let’s stay there.  Many thanks to Lew for these photos from Paris. Moving cargo on European rivers brings with it a very different lifestyle.  For starters, check out the Opel automobile nestled rear starboard abaft the house of Belcanto.  I posted many cars on barges before, as here, second photo.

This post was inadvertently launched last week but I re-boxed it.  I received these photos more than a year ago from Jonathan Steinman, who has shared many other photos here.  Can you guess where these photos were taken?   There’s a significant clue in clear view.   Titanic might not be an auspicious name for […]

Some time ago, I posted photos of small craft including one not-so-small Florida Bay Coaster (FBC).  Since then, I learned that the FBC is called SAILS and operated for many sea miles by a gentleman named Jay Wigginton, whose blog you can read here. Many thanks to Jay for sharing a set of photos from his […]

Apologies for sitting on these photos fo so long, but today’s the day to put them up.  The previous 72 can be found here. From Mage, long-time reader and commenter . . ..  the sailing vessel below is proclaimed as the “world’s oldest active sailing ship.”  I’d go along with that, since I can’t name […]
