i am pretty sure they know what they are doing but it still looks like a precarious position, Ginnie. a beautiful day, btw.
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Ayush! Thanks.
Thats an unusual vessel Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Frank!
It looks like mother is giving birth.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! That's a good one, Michael. smile
Wow - that's not something you see every day!!! Nice catch!
Ginnie Hart: Not at all, Elizabeth. I'm still not sure...why???

That boat looks like it's ready to drop! The homes have a nice view from atop the bluff. Nice autumn colors settling in as well.
Ginnie Hart: Yes to everything, Steven. It was a rainy day but we tried to make the most of it.

This is one great design to have the smaller boat able to be launched from the big boat. I love these lots where boats are waiting over winter. A great overview from what is going on on a shipyard, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Man alive. It really takes figuring this one out, Astrid, because you were the one who had to explain what was happening here. The red boat really is coming out of the big white boat!

I am pleased to read Astrid's comment - your surprising picture has an explanation then
Ginnie Hart: It amazes me that I didn't get it either, Lisl, till I read Astrid's comment. Then Michael's comment made more sense, that "It looks like mother is giving birth."

I always wondered how boats procreated..
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! grin
Drôle de position.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Martine. smile
Chantier naval en activité

Men at work - an interesting photo of this place!
Ginnie Hart: Men at work, indeed, Philine. smile
With ladylike devotion, she sails the bitter ocean,
if it wasn't for lovesick sailors,
there'd be nothin' left but flotsam.

Singin' why, me oh my, is there a better man than I?
I hope you find your way back home,
before you're lyin, high and dry,
I hope you find your way back home before you die.
Ginnie Hart: I love this, Bill. smile

The rescue vessels always fascinate me. I hope the lines are firmly attached to the smaller boat being off-loaded.
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling they've done this many times before, Alan!

Is that boat getting a piggyback Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Either that or a baby, Chad. grin
hmmmm... looks like mating season for boats lol
Ginnie Hart: Or what happens AFTER mating season, right, Elaine?! smile
Amusant le petit sur le plus grand qui donne l'impression de vouloir grimper ;-)
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It IS fun, Pascale, isn't it. smile Merci.
Wat een leuke titel bij deze scheepswerffoto.
Fijn weekend
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Marjolein. Stay warm!
Great shot Ginnie, boatyards are fascinating places to visit, so much to see and photograph.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Brian, and I agree.
I like this shot documenting the process. Friendship
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ruthie.

Ginnie Hart: I guess so, Peter. Timing is everything, as they say. smile

have a nice day
Ginnie Hart: We were there at just the right time, Willy. smile Bedankt.
A great place to have a root around with a camera! Nice picture Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: Made for photographers, Martin, for sure!
Front St Shipyard appears three times in this photo!
Ha ha... Can you find all of them?
Ginnie Hart: How clever of you to have seen that, LC!!! Thank you. smile

It seems one vessel is either coming or going, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: One just never knows about these things, Ray!
Excellent photo Ginnie. I like shipyards!
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Marie. So do I.
Good shot Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Roland.

i'm certain it's not, but it appears to be falling
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Sherri. I suppose that has happened many a time in childbirth?

It looks a bit chaotic.
Ginnie Hart: It actually took me a long time to figure it out, Cherry...until Astrid helped me SEE it. smile
