    Ship Spotters and Maritime Image Thread

    In this sticky thread I'm inviting all of you that works, lives or travels by or at sea to share your nautical themed pictures.

    The pictures can be from life on board, special moments or events, beautiful sunsets or just simply daily life.

    Any pictures that stands out from your collection and can be related to the oceans (or sea) in one way or another.

    Hoping to see many interesting images in the future.

    Thank you for posting!

    PS: This is intended for single images, if you have a collection of images from the same event or similar event, please feel free to create your own thread to share them and their story.

    Nice new additions, and thank you so much for sharing! I never get tired of looking at ships and images of them.

    JOHAN RUUD looks like a really cute vessel! Actually reminds me of one of those stern-loading ferries popular in the past.

    Massive ships no doubt... must be awesome to get that close to them, and so many different ships too.

    the ''anangel mariner'' is partly discharging her load, her beam is to much for the canal to Amsterdam. she had to pass 2 tunnels which make a max of the depth of the canal.
    thatswhy they discharge the cargo into barges that she can pass those tunnels



    ''am krakow''



    made a few images, but they where unfocused or there standing something in the way

    got many images of this one bow up, stern down, bow down stern up riding the waves.
    but only a few are good enough, and that are those when she lays flat in the water

    You mean yacht with a capital Y, I expect. I thought that half the fun of a 2-3 person yacht was leaning backwards over the side, oilskin skimming the waves and in danger of being swamped by spray at any minute - or being the first to drown after capsizing!
