these one time coastal boats didn't have all the amenities that modern cruise patrons demand, but it was a different kind of cruising in years gone by! and the ships had caracter for the old time shipwatcher! mrdot.

Perfectly lovely. I like the way the sun strikes the hull plates. An image of cruising just the way in which I like it.
