Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Lake Okeechobee it is! The second photo shows the low clearance spot on the passage across Florida: the fixed height Indiantown RR bridge, which is about a mile east of the Port Mayaca locks. The nominal clearance is 49 ft, assuming waterway is at nominal depth. Our mast height is 46 ft, not including all that stuff on top, like a wind machine, and windex, etc. The VHF whip can take care of itself. You hold your breath and trust the cruising guide as you pass under.

Those that are just a few feet too tall can get a "tilt and tow" from the Indiantown Marina. These folks come by with several barrels which they place on on side of your deck and fill them up from the waterway. then then simply tow you under and you're done. This doesn't work for catamarans, however.

OK, ebs001, it's your turn.
P.S., like your sense of humor!

For some reason I started searching lift bridges in Louisiana. I was way off.

Onward ebs001...

Ebs - That's a stealthy picture! Any subtle hints?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

There aren't really many major hints in this one for me, either.

I can't make out any courtesy flags but all the boats have dinghies and don't look like charter boats. And there is what might be a big oceangoing vessel in the distance in top left quadrant.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

There are some hints in the photo. They are all sailboats except for two commercial vessels. The sailboats are all at anchor. Most have dinghys floating behind them.

No. The commercial vessels are probably the best hint.
