I envy you for having the experience. It's better than I haven't. My own heavy drool would require an extra bilge pump for sure.

She certainly looks seaman like underway! Refresh our memory as to what issue of passagemaker mag you were featured in. You can't hide from prying eyes Capt Carl! Inquiring minds want to know.

Capt, it was Oct, 2008. It should be on her website, link below....

I like Marin's pictures better than the one they did for the article. Thanks again, Marin.

When you have a good subject it's hard not to take a good picture.

Au contraire. I can take a bad picture of the Pieta.

I agree. She's the prettiest boat in Cap Sante as far as I'm concerned.

Carl,
Have you ever considered changing to a Navy Blue hull?

Delfin's sister ship, Torsk, was blue before her new owner painted her white. Not sure why he did. I have been trying to learn how to blend Awlgrip repairs with an airbrush, 2000 grit wet/dry and polishing compounds and one thing I have learned is that it is a whole lot easier to make the repair invisible with light colors than dark. So, I'm not sure I would go the dark hull route, even thought I agree they are darned purty.

Here's a picture of Torsk in blue, and now in white (in Montenegro), as well as Ulysses on the cover of Sea magazine. Ulysses (then called Viking) was the first Romsdal in this class, but was 3' shorter. Torsk and Delfin are the remaining hulls in the series. The new owner of Torsk removed the mizzen mast, for reasons unknown, but I think she needs that mast for visual balance.

Here's one more shot of Torsk in 2008 after she was repainted white. The mizzen is still in place.

Thanks so much, Carl... For continued input and picts. Beautiful Is as Pretty Does!

Just so you know, that photograph was taken by me. So proper credits should be used, not to mention permission prior to posting.

My apologies. I believe someone sent that to me as is, so perhaps if you are concerned you should place a copyright mark on your work.

Delfin,
Disagree about the mizzen mast and I'd go for white.

No problem Delfin, since someone sent it to you, you assumed the sender was the owner.

If I put a watermark on every photo I post, that would ruin people's enjoyment in viewing it.

My memory is failing after years of retirement and can't remember the rules of copyright law. Was the photograph registered or did you include the copyright symbol prior to posting? Explain the copyright protection.

Thanks

Marty-copyright protection is actually quite simple. However, enforcement may be a different matter. In short, any thing created subject to copyright, i.e. written works, art, photos etc., is automatically owned by the creator and the copyright resides with the creator subject only to the exceptions in the law (fair use, criticism, news, and the like). No filing is required nor is it required that that the copyright symbol be displayed on the work. The copyright is automatic, granted by law. That said, enforcement is also up to the copyright holder. If someone uses a copyrighted work without permission, the owner must chase him down and seek compensation or demand the use cease. This can be painstaking and expensive. That is why, at least for digital photos, many do use a watermark so the digital file cannot be reproduced. If you check out the on-line stock photo sites, their pictures carry the watermark. As we all know, you can click on a photo you see online and generally download it in a few seconds. When someone purchases the right to use, the owner sends a file without the watermark. If you recall, several of the social websites got a lot of criticism a while back because their terms of service (which nobody ever reads!) included a provision that anyone signing up gave up their rights to any photos posted. Most have now changed or limited that provision because of the criticism they received.

I removed the crow's nest and Fwd Mast on the Ulysses last year and still have not gotten used to it. A lot less radar false images and spot light return. Have yet to make up my mind whether it looks better or not.

Thanks for that succinct explanation

Many thanks, remembered there were certain changes to the law back 25 years ago. You reminded me that the requirement of the copyright notice (symbol) was dropped.
