Boat Pics

There is the Interesting Boats thread, but I thought I'd start one that is more just for interesting photos of boats, on boats, with boats, boats doing things, etc. So here are some of mine....

The first (and only) sailboat my wife has been on under sail is the Bluenose II out of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. First two shots are from that experience.

The little Columbia gillnetter is one of my favorite kinds of boat. Similar boats were used in the Bristol Bay salmon fishery and the Monterey herring fishery. First boat that ever made an impression on me was one like this when I was a toddler in Sausalito, CA. The boat was was painted yellow and green and named Lucky Lady. She was probably responsible for my love of water stuff--- boats, floatplanes, ships, fishing, etc. Photo was taken in Fisherman's Bay on Lopez Island.

The Devon is typical of the vessels that anchor in the Vendovi anchorage outside Bellingham Bay where they way to load or unload at the two Anacortes refineries.

The custom lobsterboat Happy Destiny is owned by the folks we do a lot of cruising with. Shot is at Turn Point on Stuart Island.

The Lindsey Foss lives most of the time in Bellingham where it assists tankers, bulk carriers, and cold storage boats moving through the islands. I took this shot as we came out the entrance to our harbor.

I took the two lobsterboat shots on a trip a few years ago to Prince Edward Island.

I took the shot of the purse seiner Tribute from our slip as she was coming out in the 150-ton Travelift at Seaview North.

A few years ago I produced and directed a video for the Boeing Everett Tour Center. I hung the story on the time difference between Capt. Vancouver's voyage from England to Puget Sound and a flight today on an Everett-built plane between the same two places. Using fairly rough math, the jetliner has cut 10,071 hours off the trip, which is the name of the video.

For the opening of the video, I chartered the Lady Washington to shoot scenes representing Capt. Vancouver''s voyage. I had two cameras on the Lady Washington and one in a chase boat, the lobsterboat Happy Destiny owned by our cruising friends in Bellingham. The wind was great and I asked the captain to set every sail the boat could carry. He and the crew managed to get her going 12 knots; the fasted he'd ever known the Lady Washington to go was 13 knots.

The landing craft is a surplus LCM-6 that friends of ours bought to start an inter-island barge service. Named the Mud Puppy, they used the barge to haul contractors' equipment to building sites and a bunch of other jobs. I took the first two shots when the Mud Puppy was being put back in the water after some work in the yard in our harbor. The last photo is the Mud Puppy with her finished paint job. The interesting thing about the Mud Puppy was its crew. It consisted of the husband and wife and their two young teenage daughters (pictured in the Interiors thread).

The two girls became experts at powering the boat onto the beach and holding it there even in strong currents as the trucks, bulldozers, backhoes, etc. were loaded or unloaded. I was told the expressions on the drivers of the equipment when they saw the boat was being conned by a 14 year old girl were pretty funny to see.

I'll take credit for these photos of Lady Washington. Seen her several times in the San Francisco estuary, always under power, unfortunately.

I going to be pedantic and correct you here, sorry....

Our history, everyone's, is important....fishboat history is important to me. Small double-ended wooden fishing boats from the 1930's may all appear the same (or similar as you say) but they are really different boats developed from differing heritage for very different conditions and fisheries.

The Monterey boats of Northern California show Mediterranean heritage, principally Italian. They were/are mostly used in hook and line fishing but also in some limited net fishing. I don't think there was ever a gillnet fishery in California. A small collection of them can still be seen at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco.

The Columbia River gillnetter started out as a 28' double-ended open sail and oar powered boat. They had a very flat shallow bottom with a centerboard, as you would expect for river fishing. Old style Bristol Bay gillnetters are a direct offshoot of the Columbia River type.

The Astoria built "Finn" style troller was used for open ocean hook and line fishing. This is the boat in the picture. They have a very distinctive sheer with fine ends and swoopy lower guard. The hull is narrower, deeper, and finer lined than any gillnetter.

Gillnetters have a large open lower deck aft (or forward in Bowpickers) where a troller will have a mostly flush deck with small aft "pit".

Here's one I took of a couple real lobsterboats last weekend on a quick trip out to Long Island.

And another of boats in the Everett Marina during the holidays, which I think turned out well for a simple phone camera.

Thanks for the history. The owner of the boat in the initial photo I put up told me it had been used as a gillnet boat on the Columbia, so I assumed that's what it was. Particularly as it didn't have trolling poles, gurdies, etc..

And while the Monterey Clippers that were on the docks in Sausalito way back then were evolutions of Italian designs, they were similar in their basic configuration of small pilothouse with a forecabin to the Columbia River boat. The ones in SFO Bay tended to be used for sardines, crabs, etc. so my calling them herring boats is probably incorrect. But it's the basic configuration that's stayed in my mind. I was 2 and 3 years old when my mom was taking me for walks on the docks so I probably wasn't taking note of the exact dimensions or the curve of the sheer. Here's a Monterey Clipper. It even has a little bowsprit like the Columbia River boat.

Here's my group of interesting boat pics, all taken within a 50 mile radius of our Watch Hill RI home port.

1. Ill-fated "Bounty" headed up West Passage, Narragansett Bay.
2. "Brilliant" leaving Great Salt Pond, Block Island.
3. "Nantucket" lightship, Newport RI.
4. "Mystic Whaler", Block Island Sound.
5. USCG "Eagle" heading to its slip in New London.
6. "Charles Morgan" on the way to Newport.
7. "Nina" and "Pinta" anchored in West Harbor, Fisher Island.
8. "Amistad", clearing the breakwater in Vineyard Haven.
9. The Admiral at the wheel of "Bluenose" in Greenport.
10. "Chicken of the Sea", in 1970, sailing back from Block Island to Watch Hill, in our 17' Venture. And I might add, in which we (me, the wife, and dog) weathered 90 mph gusts in a t-storm while anchored in the Great Salt Pond. The "Chicken" is what we cut our sailing teeth on.

Marine art. Love it. Found this painting of the old Schooner Westward off the Dover Cliffs when I was looking for a James Buttersworth print to buy. Thought it was a Buttersworth but its actually by a modern Brit artist, Tim Thompson. He has a similar knack of infusing light into his pictures as Buttersworth.

The ship is the Grand Turk, sixth-rate frigate, star of numerous films under various names.
