Photo Details
Photographer:Magogman [View profile]Title:KAUAIAdded:May 21, 2008
Photo Category: Containerships built 1971-1980
The containership Kauai passes under Golden Gate Bridge as 3 windsurfers rush over to the ship to catch the waves in its wake. May 19, 2008, San Francisco, California.

Built in 1980. I believe I read in Ships Monthly that Matson has ordered replacements for the Kauai and its sisters.

How true! Spent most of my time further in the bay where the sun was usually shining--or where I could shoot with a telephoto where the sun was shining although when we got there it was 101 degrees F coming in from the airport so the coolness was often appreciated.
In 2004, before digital, I took slides of the Maui inbound under the bridge but I did not have as powerful a zoom on my old Pentax as my digital Canon has.

Typical Golden Gate fog. Must be frustrating at times when everywhere else in the area is in the blue.
