    Re post #8460:

    Fascinating paintings thanks :), here's the posted one in large format, but I wonder if in that bad weather there was enough light to shine through the waves.

    Maybe Ivan took the artistic license to improve reality a bit, like as he looks younger on his 1874 self portrait than on the 1870 photo.

    You're welcome, Angel - thanks for your appreciation and research. Yes, they're definitely a bit over the top romantic, and he seems to be pretty focussed on one theme, but so beautifully captured. And yes - the photo and self portrait - but sideburns to die for! Definitely a proto-hipster!

    Pinterest says... ‘‘ Miss Wahoo vintage hydroplanereply: This isn't the Wahoo. Destroyed at the 66 Presidents Cup as the Miss Budweiser. This is actually the 2nd Tahoe Miss from 1963. Retired from racing in 1977, and currently is in storage 2019, in this condition. A much larger boat than Wahoo. ’’

    The world needs rich people to preserve these gems and keep them at sea.

    Cats do like small spaces. But I wonder how it got in there.

    Is that a lamp, and if so, why is it looking sideways, and does it also have a back door . . ?

    All those cats look stray and pretty high to me, so I'd say Stray Cats - Mystery Train Kept A Rollin'

    It is a lighted number board on the side of the head light. However no numbers, just a cat. The cover is usually the only way in and out. The cover must be open on the opposite side.

    Krusenstern built as Padua in 1926 as the last of the Flying P-Liners, and the only one still in sailing service today, her sister Passat is a youth hostel nowadays...

    Never get lost again, paint the map of the waters you're visiting on the bottom covering panels, found in an ad, the map is the south west of Friesland . . .

    She was in 1974 built by Bein Brandsma on his Yard at the Reahel* in Augustinusga, Friesland, the Netherlands, below a cabin scow built by Bein and his team in 1975...
