    I have seen images of it, but not the video.

    The video is awesome: Bourbon Orca passing Skandi Caledonia and Havila Faith - Ulstein X-BOW

    Wonder how they film something like this, a gyro camera?

    I've never had a discussion on this ship before either. Maybe I'll do a forum search on the topic and see what the experts have said.

    I don't really mind the fishing boat; it looks like it was at the end of a long, useful life and its time had come. But I'm glad someone got some good pictures of it.

    Some of the Tall Ships were in Toronto harbor this weekend. It was a searingly bright day which seems to have upset my camera but I did my best to clean up the pictures. Enjoy!

    p.s., on mature reflection the tug doesn't seem that tall, not sure how it got in there but it adds contrast!

    Fun pictures. And don't apologize for the tug; I enjoyed it too.

    has a certain poetic justice to it Hoyt
    specially given our basic disagreements over environmental issues

    I still cannot believe the mast rake on that schooner. They really didn't have to hang a huge US flag on it, anyone who knows boats knows where it comes from!
