Favorite photo of your "baby"?

At the risk of starting another "photo thread" debate.......

Every now and then I get a photo of the boat that just says it all. Sometimes this new one jumps above the last one that was "the best". Sometimes the photo is not just about the boat alone. This past weekend I got my new winner while practicing with the drone. (previously posted a few days ago in the "video of your boat" thread)

What is the best/favorite photo of your boat you have?

Too many to choose from!

This one brings back good memories from the Owyacumish & Brim Rivers in Gardner Canal off of Douglas Channel, a place we'll be visiting often in the future. One of many places on BC's north coast people blast past in their rush heading north or south.

That's AWESOME!

I had a Sundowner 32 in the early 2000's. LOVED that boat.

That's funny...an N37 would be very near the top of my list if we ever got another boat because it would open up so many skinny water options!

I have 3 babies, so here's photos of them all. The first was taken by a friend just after I pulled out of our marina. The boat's name is Beachcomber.

Our next baby is "Little Beach", a 2010 Boston Whaler 130 Supersport. This photo was taken at the public dock at Sandpoint, ID. We had taken a 30 mile trip in the boat from Bayview to Sandpoint for lunch.

This is our 1981 Boston Whaler 130 Sport, named "Sunny Beach" that we keep in AZ. These photos were taken on Lake Pleasant where we do our boating. The first shows us exploring one of the thousands of small fingers of water.

and the next with my wife driving.

A great thread. I've been going through some Hobo pictures and it's like going down memory lane. This is one just grabbed me, Cannery Cove, AK 2008.

I love this one because there is a cool story behind it. Taken from the old bridge at Bahia Honda by a fellow boater in the anchorage. Couple of hours after we had set the hook, we get a knock on the hull. Couple in a dinghy hand me a print of this. They have an American Tug 34. Needless to say, a friendship formed.
