Thanks for your comments. In the old days before all this security stuff you could wander the docks in the harbor at Long Beach and walk onboard almost any ship unchallenged. As a kid I used to do that. I took the picture around 1960 and it sat in a box of slides for about 45 years until someone scanned it for me last summer. 10 years after I took the picture I was assigned to the MINNETONKA as an assistant engineer and sailed in her from Nov 1970 through June 1972 ... and yes she had the more modern color scheme at that time. Regards ...

ALways interesting to see some of your surprises, Don, including this real nice oldie taken before the USCG changed its color patterns.
