I'm Back

My laptop is in the shop awaiting it's fate. It will most likely need a new hard drive. In the meantime, I have dragged out a clunky old desktop computer from the closet. Seems to be working okay. We'll see how it goes.

Here are a few pictures I took around the waterfront the past few days-

New Steamship Fast Ferry

Brant Point Coast Guard 41 footer

Charter Boat, Althea K off 'Sconset

Western rigged dragger at the end of the Town Pier

Great Black-Backed Gull picking at the net of the dragger, Valkyrie

Black-Crowned Night Heron I spotted at the Cricks this afternoon

I brought this up on Yack, but this might be a better forum - I noticed a LOT of black exhaust from the Iyanough as it was turning to leave, a couple of days ago, and I also noticed that it spent a really long time in gear keeping itself docked, stirring up the bottom, rather than staying tied up until she was ready to leave.

Such a sad fate for that ol' girl.

I noticed the exact same problem the other day. Not only was the Iyanough belching thick black smoke while turning around but I observed her emitting heavy black smoke as she came up on brant Point Light in the main channel before she throttled down in the no wake zone. I have always read that diesel engines should have a clear exhaust. Anything other than a clear exhaust means that there is engine problems. I'll try to get a picture of this problem with the Iyanough in the near future. In the meantime, perhaps some diesel engine experts could chime in here with some insight.
