I've always loved those big Seaspan tugs. And it's sure interesting to see one of the ferries in dry dock.
The tanker photo reminds me of one of the jobs I had at the Vancouver Sun in the 60s — doing the list of ships in port. The harbor was always full, and English Bay was littered with ships anchored out, awaiting berths.
You are very definitely making me homesick here, Lloyd. Good thing I have a flight booked for next month or I'd have itchy feet this minute.
