I don't know if it's Obrien Cay. A friend sent me the photo.

I don't see the engines for Norman's, and either the tail would be standing, or laying next to the plane. I can't see a boat this large getting that close either?It fell over, the tail, several years back in bad weather. It looks upside down like the small plane between O'brien, and The Aquarium?........i2f

It (was) a single engine...wing shape reminds me quite a bit of a Mooney M22 or M20. Awesome photo in any event, thanks for sharing.

Lots of deck clutter on the boat.

Great photo. Really excellent stuff.

Awesome shot.

Shots like these illustrate yet again that as a photographer I'll end up spending more time up the mast than probably should!

Jeez...how do they get around on deck? Did that airplane just fall off their stern?

We start a 5 day passage today (460 miles and already thinking 5 or more dyas wind, just a little bit please!) and our decks are clear! 'Lil Dink is in the lazarette; 8 x 5 gal gerry cans deisel in the lazarette; petrol gerry stowed in the volotile lazarette; no bags, no crap, no sails NUFFIN on deck but what a sailor needs

Then we have space to swing the hammocks

I'm with you. I cant stand stuff on deck. BTW, where do you keep your plane?

In the workshop, and that's in the port hull. One bench for the fuselage, and one for the wing.If I take it apart it doesn't have to be on deck......i2f
