Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yes, it's Brandt Point at the entrance to Nantucket Harbor, which is about 100 nm (by water) from its twin at Mystic Seaport. It amazes me that the Brandt Point light survives in such an apparently vulnerable location.

BTW, you'll need more than this little light to make it into the harbor. Check the jetty that is visible on Google Earth, but is underwater at high tide. The entrance buoys will keep you out of trouble as long as you mind the chart and don't take any shortcuts.

Your turn, Zanshin.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I haven't been in to Nantucket, but I learned to sail on Matha's Vineyard in the year before I went to college.

OK - Here's a bit of a tougher one, particularly with the ship names being obfuscated a bit

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Germany, judging by the 'SCHL' and the "Henkell" umbrellas?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Yep, it is Germany. I once worked a km away from the Henkell factory, but that was in Wiesbaden, Germany and I will admit that the picture was not taken on the Rhine.

(some of) those tugs were built before 1940 and are still in use.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

You've got it and it is your turn! Those "Schleppko" tugs have diesel engines that put out 400HP while doing about 800RPM.
(I played tourist in Hamburg one day with good weather and some of the pictures are at Taking a tour of the Hamburg Port other sightseeing in the city

Jesus, I have to look more often to this thread. i was replying that. By the way for the one that go there, and the Hamburg boat show is a good pretest (It was there that I bought my previous boat) the place to eat is just behind the Port on the Portuguese quarter. The place was recommended to me when I asked on the Hamburg boat show to a nice guy (the local importer of Finngulg yachts) where was the best and cheapest place to eat. The fun of it was that he did not know I was Portuguese

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Not Miami, not Atlantic... this area (this town and a nearby neighbour) have figured prominently in Canadian news of late.. for the wrong type of reason.
