I think you were looking at me sitting in the lock. I've got some cool pics to post tonight. Nomada the steel trawler featured in Passegemaker is with me now.

Nomada is a steel tug hull with the superstructure added. I believe the house is aluminum if I remember correctly. She was the cover shot of a Passage Maker not long ago. You have to appreciate those North Sea lines. The green trawler in the marina is steel and designed by Jay Benford who designed the Florida Bay Coasters. The other shots are the Great Bridge Lock (only lock on the ICW) and Norfolk, home base of the Atlantic Fleet and the largest Naval Shipyard in the world.

Whoa. Ice and elevate, my ex would tell you. Lotta ice.

I really want to get up that way with our boat sometime. What a fantastic trip you are completing - thanks for sharing all the posts and photos, Mark.

Any time you're in Oriental, you'll have a few beer buddies down this way.

Best,
