I believe it is the Lianqiao Road bridge over the Jitimen River in Doumen. The pontoons that Mark's Coot is tied to are definitely the ones located at Seahorse Marine's steel boatyard.

Re: Coming along

Thanks. It even has two winches for the fore and aft steadying sails (for the leftover sailor in me).

Re: Coming along

No, she is not a Diesel Duck although it is made by the same company, Seahorse Marine. Diesel Ducks are passage makers, while the Coot is a coastal cruiser and gunkholer (it has large saloon windows).

Here is a photo showing the winches for the steadying sails.

Re: Coming along

She's great. I've been on a couple of Diesel Ducks. Made like tanks. There are some nice pictures of the Coot on the Seahorse Marine web site although your mast is much saltier looking. It's a great look and seems like a wonderful coastal cruiser.
