Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

It's winter - Enough of New England let's go somewhere warm!

As there aren't many features to help, the last two pictures contain significant clues. It's in a popular area but it's not particularly well known. We anchored just offshore and spent an afternoon there in Feb. '07 and had the place to ourselves. It'll probably be really easy if you've been there and quite difficult if not.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

errrr, that was a wild guess, but I see a M on the sailcover, is that a Moorings logo?

Your logic is on the right track but you're not in the right location.

Yep! Within cruising range of a Moorings base is the clue.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I can't make out the courtesy flag on the Moorings cat. The beaches aren't pristine sand but full of shells. Are those flat barges moored in the next-to-last picture?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I'm guessing the beaches usually look a bit better - this was the day after a weather front passed through. And I don't recall any barges although they are used in the area sometimes.

This island resulted from human activity and is known by two different names. Although not of natural origin it isn't polluted and you can find live sand dollars in the tide pools. It is "our" cat in the picture but I'm not really fond of cats and would usually charter a mono (yes that's a clue).

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Nope. Until now, I didnít know that Eleuthera Island was also known as Citagoo - Eleuthera is much bigger and I doubt it resulted from human activity. Look to the north.

This island was the result of dredging operations and is uninhabited. I just looked on GE and If you zoom in, you can see where the dredging took place but it only shows the original name for the island. Both names were on the chart and/or guide supplied by Moorings (I donít remember exactly).
