Or is it bottoms up?
One of my favourite work boats…
Combined age about 3,000 years! A whole lot of life experience and they’re all in the same boat!
Watch out men! It’s an invasion force!!!
Many years ago I worked on deep sea salvage tugs and, since then, I’ve always had a soft spot for tugs. The second image shows the tug Statesman, the first tug I went to sea on in 1972 (this makes me feel VERY old!). The radio callsign of the statesman was 6ZQS (Liberian) but was changed to GSAA when the Statesman became registered in Britain (something to do with the Cod War!). The front of the Statesman looked like one of those expensive ocean-going yachts.
I’ve been meaning to sort out my images for years.
At last I’ve started with my monochrome images (and there are hundreds of them!)
You can see my various galleries here on Adobe Portfolio:

Just can’t get enough gears these days…
Here’s a flashback to 2015 – Amsterdam Sail. The next Amsterdam Sail will be in 2020.
WARNING. Some brief (very brief) nudity!

For interesting background textures, you just can’t beat flakey paintwork….
The weekend when Amsterdam really rocks! Looking forward to Gay Pride 2016.
