I had the opportunity to spend a few hours on board the USCG training vessel Eagle. Here are a few of the pictures I came away with

Good set. I like the light through the sails in #2.

Me too PhotoGuy, thanks! I'm thinking about printing it as a canvas or metallic, although I have no experience with metalic prints. Any thoughts?

Way back in the mid 1960's, The Eagle made a port call to Argentia Nfld. Canada. I was 8 or 9 at the time. I remember getting a tour of her. A beautiful ship lovingly maintained. When I saw her, she had not been painted white with the red stripe, all natural wood color.
Great photos, they did what photographs are supposed to do.... bring back memories. Thank you.
