    Re: Transportation Thread

    Beautiful tallships there Frog. And appropriate for the 4th, of course.

    This was part of my transportation on the 4th... a bit quicker.

    Re: Transportation Thread

    A few nice boats taken during Skandia Race Week in Geelong and Melbourne, earlier this year.





    A 'Classic Design' classic racing yacht. 'Windward II'.





    'Goldfinger' a Farr 52. Goldfinger is (ex) Ichiban. She is now getting old but She is still golden.





    A concordia 56 called 'Concordia'. I like the bleached teak deck with the darker caulking. The striations contrast beautifully with the paint.


    APC Max (below) taken the evening before last season's Marlay Point Race. Moored at Paynesville on the Gippsland Lakes in Victoria. Max is a Ferrari red modified Grainger cat. Nearly all carbon fibre and she goes faster than the wind. In fact, APC Logistics Max is more like an aircraft than a boat.





    As far as transportation goes, racing sailboats is as slow as a wet week ... until you fall off one.

    Warren.

    Very cool boats there Warren. I've never been a big sailboat guy, but I love the lines of the racing sailboats.

    Re: Transportation Thread

    WOW! You Guys have posted some pretty good stuff here. (Love the Sailboats)
    Here's a recent find. All shots taken with my little Fuji P&S camera.
    Paul's 1956 Packard Executive. After speaking with Paul, I found that he has owned this car since 1964.
    -Bruce

    Here's Paul.

    The engine is a 374 cubic inch V8 with two 4 barrel carbs, and rated at 310 horsepower with 405 FT LBS of torque.

    The car has a 4 SPD manual transmission that Paul has managed to convert the shifting duties via solenoids to push buttons which can be seen on the pod to the right of the steering wheel.

    Rear mounted air conditioning too.

    Might as well post the rear too.

    Re: Transportation Thread

    Here's another one that might fit in a transportation thread nicely. (I've got a ton of transportation photos.)
    This is from a road trip to Washington a few years back. I thought this ship looked too big to be there, but I'm sure is just an optical illusion.

    Re: Transportation Thread

    My Skipper Lee Neilsen, the Naval Architect Glen Sealy and I, did a training run on Twofold Bay at Eden on the New South Wales South Coast. We started sailing to New Zealand on the first day, to check out the boat in the conditions ... but sadly after several hours we turned around, and came back to Snug Harbour where we moored. We spent the next few days racing ... and performed very badly. We were somewhat rusty in the big seas and monster winds. We raced a Micro Tonner.

    When we crossed Twofold Bay, we sailed alongside the wood chip bulk carrier Ken Koku from Panama. Ken's given name must be Kendra ... because all boats are females.

    Ken is so tall she puts creases in the fabric of the sky and she also decimates the forests of SE Oz. When we sailed within metres of her, her Philippino crew had paroxysms. There are many protests at the wood chip mill at Eden, and in the SE forests, the crew were looking worried with our dark tanned skin, I didn't blame them.

    An HDR image from single JPEG exposure.





    A timber-jincker arrived beside Ken every 3 minutes to load logs from the forests of SE Australia into her deep hull ... as if they were just matchsticks .





    It is funny calling Eden, Eden. In the late in the afternoon, after seeing the woodchip mill, Eden looks more like Hell.





    Two Sport Boats, Padme and Humungus. I'm currently working on both of these speedy boats.

    Padme is the Mother of Luke Skywalker, she is a Magic 25 Class, Magics looks like Melges 24s. Magics are several knots faster, when on a work and running than the Melges in good winds, and when sailed well. The crew apart from the helm, hangs out on wires on Magics... out on the trapeze. I shouldn’t say wire (that's old school bateau speak). Nowadays, the crew hangs out on unsheathed 2mm braided Dyneema. Humungus, well, her nickname is Human-gas. Humun-gas gasses every other yacht that comes anywhere near her.

    8 exposure HDR, from Raw. EV +/- a 1/3 of a stop, both sides of the average reading. I only took this shot yesterday in the rain. The forest of masts and trees ... still describes winter.





    Warren.

    Re: Transportation Thread

    Take a slow look at the rigging on WOT YOT, moored in Twofold Bay off Green Cape on the horizon. WOT YOT is a Nelson Merrick 52.

    HDR from a single JPEG exposure, modified to TIF. Then 'Tone Mapped' using Photomatix Pro 3's 'Detail Enhancer' functions. It is the 'Micro Shader' that forms the illusion of a 3-D relief. Post HDR was done using Canon's ArcSoft programme. The file was then converted to PNG format, so that I could post through Photobucket. Photobucket doesn't handle TIF files.
