Re: Nautical Oddities

I wouldn't be surprised if a pressure washer could explode some of those boats.

LOL - "Basically, I guess, yes..."

At least I know why they call it Moss Landing...
Believe it or not...it use to be much worst there. They have been cleaning it up. It has taken many years.

Re: Nautical Oddities

Just another oddity. Not from Moss Landing.

Moss Landing was one of the most interesting places to walk the docks. Every few feet was something different. Not just rows of plastic. I really liked it.

kind regards,

Re: Nautical Oddities

There was a place off of Miami that we anchored that looked just like Moss, but I hear they have cleaned it up. Oldest boats I have ever seen seem to be anchored in Florida.

Re: Nautical Oddities

Another oddity.

I'm not certain if this one floats but it looks nautical.

Any idea where the shot was taken?

It was taken at NCYC Newcastle Australia. They must have had a wet ride looking at the gear draped over the boom.

Re: Nautical Oddities

Kinda off topic (if possible) and possibly related.

Stumbled across this elsewhere.

Enjoy.

kind regards,
It takes me 10 times as long to drive a coast as inland. I can't pass a marina without trying to get in. Theere were some inteeresting boats and a couple of big fishing boats with inteeresting names.

"4 Sons" and "3 Daughters" - do these boats really get new names every 9 months or so?
