Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Come on you guys!! I can't believe no one's recognized it yet. I got it at once. It's Gilligan's Island. (Where do I pick up my prize?)

Yep, the old US 13 St. Georges Bridge and the new Delaware route 1 bridge. Another gateway to the Maryland and Delaware beaches!

Looks like a car carrier to me, Down.... We also get bulk carriers (Pulp, Lumber etc) designed something like that - keeping cargo dry, I suppose, rather than on deck/in hold.

Faster's right, it's a car carrier... Also known as a Ro-Ro, for "Roll On, Roll Off"... If you look at the starboard stern quarter, you will see an offset "door" that lowers onto the pier, and the ship is loaded/unloaded by simply driving the vehicles on/off...

They definitely get my vote, for the type of ship I'd least desire to be aboard during a full storm at sea...

OK, here's the seawall outside a famous port, someone will probably get this one immediately...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I don't know where that might be (looks a bit like the sea wall around Antibes, France but the houses are too close), but the picture is a beautiful one!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Looks like the 'Malecon' of Cuba? That yellow painted seawall is quite famous among tourists and local Cubans if it is.
