Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Faster, I can blame old age on not remembering things, but you're a young fellow. I found the photo posted here earlier in the game and that's all I'm saying. I know Zanshin will object to my not naming the location, but he's probably sound asleep now anyway.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK.. Seaduction rightly chastised me for posting a prior location (more recent than I'd thought, apparently.... )

So lets try this one

Local sloop under construction on the island of Carriacou (Windward)looking toward Petite St. Vincent?(or Petite Martinique)

Bingo! .. nicely done. Have you been there? Its a delightful island off the cruise ship route, unbelievably beautiful beaches totally deserted.. and a charming place to visit for the people. Petit Martinique in the background, you can just see the point of Petite St Vincent on the left.

The vessel in the background is hard aground, has been for years since a storm blew it off Petit Martinique in the background.

Here's another view of it and the beach with the reef it's on from the hills above. We walked several kilometres around the top of the island ending up at the sloop construction yard before taking a delightful bus back to Tyrell Bay. This shot shows Petit St Vincent, with Pt Martinique to the right.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Perhaps a clue is in order. This "beach" is just a short walk away from this harbor.

That's a beautiful classic old Swan!!

Makes me think of Granada, St Georges.... (the waterfront, not the Swan)

Again, Sir, you're half correct on the location. The Swan 68 is a 5 cabin center and aft cockpit layout worth about 3 million at the time (not my boat) that easily averaged 10 plus knots under sail.
