Nope. Cooler than that.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Looks like the boats go into the chamber on the left then float onto the railway cars, then up and over the mountain?

Re: Picture Identification Game

My guess is the little railway cars somehow carry the vessel, support it, as itís carried up the ramp. Itís a funny inclined railway contraption. The cars are let down low enough that the boat is floated onto the cars. What Iím missing is how the boat is supported on the cars and/or why the cars donít have flat surfaces. So Iím confused as usual.

Re: Picture Identification Game

Iíll bet. When reading about now I can see how it works. Very cool indeed! Thanks.

OK here is my pic for you all to guess. Actually Iím going to give you 2 pics, both from my cockpit while anchored. A daylight photo looking one direction, and a second photo at night looking the other direction.

As no one has had a go with Hpeer's I will

I think its Sint Martin, Dutch Side in the Simpson Bay Lagoon looking towards the Causeway.

Boat is anchored off Isle De Sol - Or moored in it if Hpeer is excessively rich!
The night shot shows Port De Pleasance in the left and Isle de Sol in the centre and right.
