Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

One looks like it could be an auto ferry, the other some sort of passenger ferry or water taxi. It's hard to be sure though.

I'm guessing this is not a far off destination every boat has the outboard on the dink so they are not set up for a crossing... Is it in New England?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Ferries? Passenger and vehicle? So we may be at/near/on an island?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It's not New England. Picture was taken January 11th. in the evening. The larger ship is a feighter and the smaller one a passenger ferry.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Ok the courtesy flag is not the Bahamas.
Ive seen it, but not too sure. Its similar to the Antigua flag, but I think its the Dominican Republic.
As I have not been there I dont know the harbours so ill say Santo Domingo

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Mark you are right. In the first picture the sailboats at anchor with dinghies gave the clue that it was a cruising destination. The two commercial vessels let one know where. The ferry is an Albury ferry unique to the Abacos and the freighter indicated a harbour. Had to be Marsh Harbour. The courtesy flag in the second photo is the Bahamian ensign which is flown as the courtesy flag.

Ahhh, yes, i remoember now. There was some discussion as to the correct flag to fly as the courtesy flag. I went for their national flag as I dont think it should be the ensign... And it was $2 instead of $20 for the ensign... Lol

Wait a moment and il find a photo.
