    These are not seafaring photos but a lot of seafarers were interested in their music.
    I took these photos in a bar, called Hard Rock Cafe, in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii.
    all autographed by the late great Hank Williams, Buddy Holly, Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens.

    Default La Zingara

    Hi there
    Can anyone direct me to a photo or pic of this ship?
    Built in 1860 in Liverpool, she was a 287 ton barque used on the Liverpool Argentina run. She belonged to the Thomas B. Royden & Co fleet.
    best regards

    These three pics were taken as slides in 1968,that is why the quality is so poor. But they show a ship I was on,the Demeterton, stuggling around the Cape of Good Hope in a bit of a storm. That last wave shook us like a terrier shakes a rat and the impact forced the Windlass back by two inches. It was one hell of a thud,

    Captain Kong.
    We went to Hawaii mid 1993 and went to see the HRC @ Maui It realy is a great place to visit. Here is a copy of one of their advertisement's.

    (Ever play that game where you sit around and try to imagine what albums you'd want on a desert island? Well, wonder no more! We've forged ahead and made the decision easy for you at the Hard Rock Cafe Maui, where rocking out is elevated to an art form. We've got great tunes a-plenty, so pack light, catch a wave and surf on over! The historical backdrop of Old Lahaina town (once the capital of Hawaii) provides an alluring setting, with a lush tropical locale beyond compare and local sights that'll blow your mind, including Haleakala, "the House of the Sun," the world's largest dormant volcano.

    From our cafe's quiet garden-style oasis, drink in majestic Pacific vistas, get a close-up glimpse of whales on their migration paths, or just sit back, relax, and enjoy the airy look and feel of our glorious open beam, A-frame ceiling. Marvel at our various island-inspired memorabilia, including an entire wall dedicated to surfer greats Derek Ho, Brock Little, and Kelly Slater. So when the surf's down, or even when it's up, get on over to our most exotic location around- the Hard Rock Cafe Maui!)

    Hi Reg,
    thanks for that, it realy is just that, a beautiful island where you can sit with a cool beer and watch the whales blowing spray as they swim past on their way north Hard Rock Cafe is a very interesting bar to be in.
    Lahaina is a place I could enjoy living in. Then there is the worlds biggest Banyon tree at the market,
    This Banyan Tree was first planted in April, 1873, and marked the 50th Anniversary of Christian missionary work in Lahaina. The tree was imported from India was only 8 feet tall. It now stands over 60 feet high, has 12 major trunks in addition to a huge core. It stretches over a 200-foot area and shades 2/3 of an acre.

    Not so much ships as boats I guess, but here's some nautical scenes from beautiful Cortes Island, British Columbia, Canada. I was lucky enough to spend a month here in 2006.

    Cheers lads. It is indeed a lovely place. Only tiny and squeezed in between the Rockies and Vancouver Island, which you can see in the background and which is huge, the size of Britain.
    The light there was amazing, very different to here and great for photography.

    Indeed. Those float planes were everywhere, taxis of the skies. We got one down from Vancouver to the island and got ferries back, which was cheaper but no less enjoyable. Smallest aircraft I've ever been in (except a microlight), the views were stunning...
    They can land on the smallest stretch of water, this shows how they just slot in among the boats when mooring...



    If you're looking for a really special holiday, a combination of Vancouver (direct flights from Manchester), the Rockies and the 'Discovery Islands' is definitely it. Beats the crap out of the Med.

    It's the same all up the Pacifis Coast. I was in Alaska, and they use them to go to the shops. I hitched a lift on a few of them. I thought militarry flying was hairy. Jeez, them guys just don't give a hoot. They were the worst flights I ever had.

    'Cept for a crazy Russian in Venezuala. If he's reading this, you scared me to death you b4stard.

    Too right. I think scaring the **** of tourists brought a bit of interest to their working day.
    The place they landed and took off from in Vancouver was nuts, dodging boats and canoes as a matter of course...



    This is Vancouver Harbour's equivant of the Mersey Ferry- these water taxis are the titchiest little public transport craft I've ever seen..

    Thanks KH, I'll bear that in mind. It looks really amazing. I've done the US rockies, but you can't see the backdrop against the water like that. I've been up in a similar plane [De Havilland DHC-6 Canada Twin Otter] in the Maldives. The pilot was so laid back and chilled, flying without shoes, and commentary all the way. Nice job.

    Great pictures BTW.

    Smile Victoria...

    ...harbor was way more crowed than anywhere in the Mersey...

    The water taxis in Victoria, just like the Vancouver ones, where everywhere like you say, float planes of several sizes seem to be taking off or landing every few minutes and lots of smaller pleasure craft around. By comparison, Victoria Airport where I landed (no floats......) was quite calm.

    Here is a more traditional shot of the Empress hotel I took in July this year, with one of the water taxis behind the canoes. One of the several seaplane jetties is just off the picture to the left.

    `FRANCE` of the French Line,
    Launched May 1960, and maiden voyage in January 1962 and used on the Southampton, Le Havre, New York run.
    In 1975 she was laid up in Le Havre on the "Quay of the Forgotten," I saw her there when she had just tied up and the crew had a strike and a `sit in`, but to no avail.
    In 1979 the Norwegian Line bought her and she was redone as a cruise ship instead of a Liner and renamed `NORWAY`.
    In 2003, 8 men were killed in a boiler room explosion in Miami and she never cruised again. She was renamed Blue Lady for the one way journey to Alang in India and run ashore there, despite a great attempt to save the ship and moor her in St Nazier where she was built. In 2008 she was scrapped.
    She was the longest liner in the world until the `Queen Mary 2` was built. She was 315 m. and QM2 is 345m.

    I was doing the Canadian Rockies along the Ice Field Parkway around the Athabasca Glacier on my way from Banf to Jasper.

    An American tourist said to me `What a fantastic sight`.
    I said `Yes but the view is spoiled by those mountains, if they wern`t there we could have a better view.`
    The American looked at me and said, `What are you ? some kinda nut?`

    I guess he didnt have too much of a sense of humour.

    That's typical, who was it said that we are seperated from them by a common language!! They have never quite mastered sarcasm either.
