Old Timers

I saw this old timer the other day. A quiet resting place for old bones. KJ

Talk about old bones (on the bank of the Napa River):

One of John Wayne's old movie props along the banks of the Sacramento River.

Ray, was that from the movie Blood Alley? (Hope you're not pulling our legs.) Exactly where are the remains of the boat? Seems to be in remarkably good condition, considering.

Yes, it was his mid-1950s movie, Blood Alley. Much of the filming took place near China Camp on San Pablo Bay. I took the photos in 2010, give or take, around Courtland on the Sacramento River. I don't know if she's still there. I heard that the owner was trying to get sufficient funds together to re-float her and possibly offer dinner/party excursions. I'll try to research her whereabouts and let you know.
