In Search of Tall Ships

Trailered "Bayshots" 1-1/2 hrs up the Coast this weekend to Dana Point.
They have a couple of tall ships I wanted to check out.
The Brig "Pilgrim" only goes out once a year and I missed it just last week due to damn work commitments .However the "Spirit of Dana Point" does weekly trips, so decided to follow her out.
Came across a parasailer and couldnt resist a couple of shots.
Also fun to see the "Spirit" having trouble docking against a strong wind.So what do they do? Call on the trusty little RIB to act as a tug.
The house on the cliff amazed me Remember we live in an earthquake zone here. Can you imagine waking up,sliding down the cliff
Keep your view!!!
cheers Dal

Looking at the RIB shot berthing the sailing ship brings me back to a question I always ask myself.

How on earth did pre powered ships dock in a port like Portsmouth, England. Must have took a lot of rowing. And shouting and cussing.

Yup - and some serious seamanship to sail into most places. Also they used to warp(winch) the ships some suprising distances.

Great shots again Dal - house is amazing - especially the Alpine style roof - obviously essential to get rid of all the heavy snow.......

The steam engine was invented around 1700, and was certainly used in large tugs by 1800, I would guess earlier too. Nineteenth century ships were I believe much bigger than those of C17th and C18th - The Mary Rose and the Mayflower were "only" about 100' in length. Have a look at Turner's The Fighting Temeraire it's a good piece of historical documentation.
