    As the shown bridge tells it's the port of Leixões at the mouth of the river Leça, just a few miles northwest of the city of Porto at the mouth of the river Douro, however Leixões lies in the Porto district, and the city of Porto doesn't, don't know how this dismemberment originated.

    Hoyt visited her sister the USCGC Eagle in Tampa about a decade ago, see post #2935, they were once German ships, seized after WW II.

    Think the animal is less dangerous in the water, so I'd rather swim with it than try to keep up running in front . . :eek:

    You've mentioned her previous German name Horst Wessel, he's infamous for his song, the unofficial anthem of the Nazi party, that made it stuck in my mind and made it easy to find it too with the forum search option, as these two words together are only mentioned a few times on these forums till now.

    I was able to visit the Eagle in June of 1972 when she visited Galveston. I was seriously considering joining the USCG at that point.

    I went into electronics engineering. After retiring I volunteer a lot on a tourist railroad doing restoration and repair on train cars. Here I am wielding my favorite tool, a hammer.

    Don't force it. Use a bigger hammer. I dug a 2 feet deep by 40 feet long ditch with a sledgehammer once and once is enough.

    It could be anchored against a tidal bore... (a large wave caused by the funneling of a flood tide as it enters a long, narrow, shallow inlet)

    Like on the Qiantang River in East China . . :eek:





    Or like in the UK while some are River Surfing
