What do I do on my off time? This: http://goo.gl/uiRcQ Hit the slideshow function, have a glass of wine, and enjoy!


Imagine a ship trying to set sail while towing an anchor. Cutting free is not a gift to the anchor. You must release that burden, not because the anchor is worthy, but because the ship is.

Not so much a tall ship person, but I can appreciate a nice cannon.

WHOOOP WHOOOP WHOOOP! The man owes me a drink! Them thaings is GUNS sir! Naval Guns! 6 pounders, to be exact. Cannon are those things with BIG wheels on land that horses and oxen haul around. If they are on a ship, they are Guns and calling a naval gun a Cannon on the Tall Ship Californian is an offense punishable by buying the crew a round of beer.

So say it loud, say it proud, and pull out your credit card!

Yeah, when I need to get away, I go to the ocean. Or the bay. Or any bit of water.

Chria, you REALLY want to have a "good moment?" You should see my other mount. The 1904 Steam Yacht Medea

She is one of only three Edwardian Steam Yachts left in the world. She''''s a hell of an elegant lady and a hell of a ride!

Edited: shoot. Wish I knew how to embed photos!

Edited: aesir, here goes!

My great-great-great grandfather was the captain of a clipper that used to run Opium from China. It was the last one built a Mystic. I love these ships, we used to go to Boston Harbor to watch them come in....

Too bad you can't get sprung from the Asylum, Chria. My FWH and I have a couple of invites to go out on Medea later this month. (Insert evile laugh!)

The only non-crew person that the captain gives that wheel up to is the President of the museum. And VERY rarely!

More sail-porn:

HMS Surprise. Yep, the ship from Master and Commander. And from Pirates of the Caribbean 4, where she was re-named the Providence. I got to sail her on that shoot. If you look very, very fast for 1/4 of a second, you can see me onscreen.

And what is that very large ship on the far right of the above photo? Why that's the Star of India, who turns 150 this year! Is the a World Heritage Site, and the oldest actively sailing ship in the world. Another ship I've been privileged to sail.

And yes, she is sailing, not under tow. We try to take her out every year around her birthday (November 14) and sail her for 2-3 days. Day trips only she is not rated for overnight sails due to some modifications made when she was used for hauling timber they cut thru some of her watertight bulkheads. She made 21 trips around the world in her day. She is a proud old lady, and I'm honored to be able to work on and with her.

Beautiful... I used to love watching them in NY and in Boston. There is nothing like watching a flotilla of tall ships sail

Skan, I know you work hard at what you do... but you still one lucky girl to get to do it.

Skan ... I know she doesn't qualify as a Tall Ship but considering that all of the ships in her class have been scrapped years ago, she is a classic RCN ship. I had the priveledge of serving on the HMSC Ottawa in the late 70's as a stoker (marine engineer for you civies) and I have fond memories of my time on board. Once a navy boy, always a navy man.

OOOHhhhhhhh, Pretty Girl! Hey, have you ever seen a photo of the USS Lane Victory?

She's in San Pedro and is the only Victory ship from WWII to still "sail." She is also a World Heritage Site, AND she goes out to sea 3-4x during the summer. You can go out on her! She's rated to take passengers for day trips only, so she sails from San Pedro to Catalina and back. During her sail, you're entertained by lindy dancers, a spy being discovered on board, and then an aerial attack of WWII airplanes that are driven off by the ship's guns, happily manned by Sea Cadets. It's just a wonderful ride. She's also open year round for tours and well worth it.

Dang! We're getting our own little ship-fix down here!

BTW, I'm former navy, but a Hospital Corpsman. Didn't even know how to tie a bowlin during all four of my navy years!

Being at pretty much the geographic center of the continent, not a lot of opportunities to see old sailing ships here. This is pretty much it.

Aesir ... Yes, I know Winnipeg likes to think of itself as being in the middle of Canada, dry and dusty but it does have a rich Naval history.
