Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Since Don Juan and I both missed the name of Mark's location I guess its fair to name it for us slower players that have been otherwise occupied:

Port-aux-Franšais is the capital settlement of the Kerguelen Islands, French Southern and Antarctic Lands, in the south Indian Ocean. The port station is located on the Gulf of Morbihan, at

49.35░S 70.219░E, a near antipode of Medicine Hat, Alberta and Havre, Montana. It has about 45 inhabitants in winter, which can rise to more than 120 in summer.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Thanks. Giving us the name of the wrecked ship is a really big clue.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Oh well here goes. Its the wreck of the Sapona near Bimini. A ship designed by Henry Ford during WWI and built with concrete.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

BINGO!! Great job! Have you been there, to the Sapona? We live in South Florida so we make it over to the Bimini chain fairly often. The Sapona is a bit "touresty" but we always end up there somehow.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Haven't been there JR, but done several sails in the Bahamas back in the 80's.
Since some of the puzzle pics here have been at the far ends of the world, I will keep up the theme of remoteness with this island picture:

Tristan de Cunha was one of the places I played with. Even the second photo has a sign with the name, that island is almost on the same latitude, and right in front of our shore in Uruguay, more than 2000 nm away, in the mid of the south atlantic.
