Default Headed South for SALT

Betty, Saylor and I launched at Shelter Island ramp San Diego Bay around 10:30 and headed out toward the Pacific it was a beautiful warm day. There were four foot swells but they were smooth and kind of fun. Passed a awesome looking ship about two miles out before we turned around to see more sites. Stopped by a guy fishing in a 1965 Glasspar Sedan, how cool. It had a nice what they call a navy top right down to the windshield, in the center was an area about 2 feet wide that you could open or look out. A lot of power boats and sail boats were out enjoying the warm day. As we got near the Coronado Bridge there were several Navy ships being repaired / refurbished of all types and sizes. Interesting to see how its done. Passed by the Mercy Hospital ship and cruised right beside the USS MIDWAY had to almost look straight up at it. An old Submarine that almost sunk last year, beautiful sailing ships the Star of India, and the San Salvador. When we launched three Seal touring boats entered the water and as we were coming in one more was going out. Overall a beautiful warn day smooth seas and cruised 25 miles.

Why no pictures of the Sedan, I noticed you got yours in?
Are you going to bring the Seafair to DOTD.

Default At FIRST PASS

We didn't notice the way we approached from the stern and only talked shortly. He was fishing. About four hours later we were headed back to the ramp and he was in the center of the main deep channel fishing and there were regular tour boats, big seal boat and private big boats cruising around and a navy ship had just passed. I position us so Betty could take a picture of the top, and we were bouncing around so much she gave up. Next time.
We will cruise in the Avalon on the Delta run.

Cool pics, thanks. Those two warships underway I make out to be the Chafee (DDG 90) and the Pinckney (DDG 91). Both are the latest versions of the Arleigh Burke class guided missile destroyers. I never get tired of seeing those ships in motion. But what in Neptunes Navy is that enormous superstructure on the ship in dry dock? It is wrapped in a white preservative material so I can't tell anything except it's odd shape.

Betty and I always enjoy seeing different boats and ships. But there is nothing better then seeing a Navy ship under way. The Dewey and Sterrat are leaving for troubled waters in the far East today.
We launch at Shelter Island ramp and the boat yard on the way always has 8 or 10 private boats of different sizes wrapped up tight just like the pictures of the Navy ships. I think this is for environmental control, dust, paint chips, over spray and noise.
In the second picture you can see one tower wrapped and the rear tower has the scaffolding up but not wrapped yet
P #5 not sure what this is.
i #6 on the Midway a Jet from the USS Enterprise
c #7 old Russian Submarine
t #8 Don't know about this one
u #9 San Salvador this sailing ship was built right here from the
r ground up in the last four years
e #10 California

32nd street Naval Ship yard, I spent a few weeks there, we bent a screw when it hit a camel as we were leaving. USS HECTOR AR-7 1965
