I first used this title over five years ago here . . . back when I still put captions underneath fotos. My preference now is to put captions above because of how you need to scroll down to read a post. Sorry about the confusion.
SeaEden . . . sounds like it’s designed to make crew think conditions are idyllic . . . .
Foto comes from bowsprite . . . Dole Colombia. . . as blotchy yellow as a banana skin.
Adriatic Wave . . . movement of water or shape of energy or a social trend or a hand signal?
Asian Grace . . . as I pursued her a few weeks ago, I wondered what she was . . . Little did I expect a RORO, here assisted into the port of Wilmington by a tug mirage that appears to float of the water with a ball-shaped hull. Tugs might be Sonie and Sally.
Grand Champion . . . makes a recently stripped bicycle racer come to mind.
High Seas . . . looking calm. I’ll be there’s no vessel named “international waters,” although I once saw a rowboat with mare liberum painted on the bow.
I’ve never seen a vessel–not even this one–sans name. Actually this is Atlantic Pearl.
What attracted my attention to Himalaya was the spare prop, but the name memorializes a place as far from sea level as is possible.
Here’s a shot showing Puffin and Huffin together.
Ah . . . hand signal . . . so that’s how one might do the Adriatic Wave?
With the exception of Dole Colombia . . . all fotos by Will Van Dorp.
