Yes sometimes I get hooked and spend a lot of time own this thread, like the recent post by Fallard at Mystic. Took me a long time but was enjoyable and I learned a lot, firstly when I was in the wrong place looking at tall ships in Sweden, Holland, and then when I narrowed it down to East coast USA, where have never visited.

Mostly not much time, check sailnet from my Ipad which i can do on the bus to work, on my boat, or while i am preparing dinner.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

After my first wild guess, y went to Perth using maps.google.com, then enabled Pictures, and activate filter tag "bridge", and that is all. In browser mode you can see thumbnails of pictures, and discard the ones that are very different even in a large zoom out of the map.
In the other hand, have to say I'm my own boss, and I'm about to fire myself for being so much time on this game, which I prefer over any facebook, twitter or locals news paper.

Picture will be in a while, have to work a bit.

have fun

I believe the ones are sailing are not playing right now, they come time to time, and always when in anchorage with free wifi and some daikiri dancing around. While some of us, running from one place to other, with phones, notebooks, tablets, you name it, are hung on this social exchange while working, or trying to. Also there are periods, and waves.
For mei it is a induced way of learning, and sneak other peoples experiences and adventures, to plan my own one...

regards, have fun.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I spend most of my day either talking with clients or working on this thing so I keep Sailnet and youTube running in the background and just have a look see every now and then.

Damn you Lawrence... I sat here staring at that shot and forgot completely that you are a SandGroper. Shoot.

Port Everglades (at Ft. Lauderdale) The building to the right behind the tug boats is the cruise ship terminal.
