All summer long I would take pictures using slide film. During the winter I would process the slides. I tried to convert the slides and save to disk. That didn't work. I had Walmart do it for about the same price as what the equipment would have cost. After time some of the slides were moldy. Some slides were flipped wrong when copied. I have no complaints of Walmart's work.

1976 I sailed from Ft Pierce to NY for the BI Centennial. 10,000 boats were estimated in the harbor. Never once did I feel threatened by other vessels. Wish I could say the same on the water here on an average day.

Thanks. Cool pictures. I remember when that happened. Only time in my life I really wished I was in New York.

I was anchored off the Polish warship near Ellis Island. It was one of the many large vessels that established the boarder for spectator boats. I calculated the current was about to change at the beginning of the procession. All the boats that raced up front had to move as the warship swung with the change in current. I was then able to get front row position once they had to move.

The fireworks that night were detonated from five different locations around the harbor. lady Liberty was veiled in a cloud of smoke long after the display ended.
It was the best display ever witnessed.

This was my boat back them. Simple, wood, 33 ft English built Hillyard. Nothing fancy. No refrigeration, not even an built in ice chest. Had a great little 16 hp, hand crank Petter diesel

Image


Living aboard was a simple way of life.

Two of us hand steered all the way up. Three on the way back. On return I immediately bought an Aries Steering gear direct from Nick Franklin, designer and builder.
