The theme for the first half of August is boats, ships, and water - particularly the water's edge where water meets land. Oh, barges are more than welcome, too!

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

For those looking forward to the second half of the month, the theme will be diesel locos.

Let me start off the month with these shots of a tug on the Pacific Southern layout.

One (or I should say; TWO or even THREE) from the Old Colony & South Shore Railroad of Cliff Coutinho in New Bedford, MA.

Say Paul, what a thrill it was to see your pick from Rockport as I have the Bar Mills model of that structure that Bill Tweedy presented to me as a gift. Bill did a masterful job on the structure and it will help form a nice scene on my future shelf layout!

Here's a little steam launch inspired by the movie "African Queen". The hull of the boat is a cheap cast metal piece with scratch built engine, boiler and deck.



And a steam passenger ferry using the Artitec resin kit as a base model.

My brother-in-law was a doctor in Digby, Nova Scotia for many years. We'd visit regularly and I always enjoyed checking out the tide situation at the government wharf. Digby has some of the highest tides in the world, over 9 meters (almost 30 feet).



Any stair ramps leading down to the docks are hinged to allow vertical movement.



Nova Scotia is a beautiful province to visit...a must-see for any tourist to Canada!

I always am in awe over the ability of you gentlemen. Maybe some day...

I only have one decent close-up of my only water, what I call the Seneca River. I tried to make it look like the early summer water during run-off in the South Thompson River in southern BC. I actually got most of the way there!

I took this picture of a BC Ferry from on board another BC ferry. We were departing just north of the city of Vancouver or Vancouver Island. Modellers note how the mountainous terraoin on the west coast of British Columbia descends right into the sea.



Another image of a marine vessel taken from a marine vessel. I am in Bamfield on the west coast of Vancouver Island, the location where the Pacific underwater cable line from Asia reaches North America. Modellers take note of the colours in the planking in the wharf...the brown planks were most likely new replacements. Also take note of the weathering on the two larger vessels in the picture.

A trawler loading a triceratops on Alexander Zelkin's layout. (The survival of dinosaurs in this area is due to some unexpected properties of the craddonium... ).
