Help stop the State of Hawai‘i from evicting the National Historic Landmark ship Falls of Clyde from Honolulu Harbor. This ship is the only one of her kind in left in the world.

Save the Falls of Clyde
In addition, you can help by contacting your local politicians, news outlets, sharing on social media…spread the word!
For me, this is déjà vu, in a bad way. Much more painful than in 2008. Sigh.
I took the day off. Much needed rest and a visit to the harbor again.

Kaiyo Maru was getting ready to leave Pier 9.
Captains Enos and Hopkins along with the ship’s captain:
Kaiyo Maru crew with fender:
JD Pringle arrived towing something:
After a few rough weeks, it was wonderful to be allowed to tag along with Captain Enos on the Horizon Reliance job. There is nothing like being out on the water.
On board Honolulu:
I love the lines of these old LASH ships!
P & R boats in the harbor:
Horizon Reliance turning in the basin:
The Admiral’s Barge (from Pearl Harbor) hauled out on PSI’s dry dock:
Had a rough week too?
Thanks to Captain Ed Enos and Paul. Feel much better.
I went to the harbor to watch the departure of Esmeralda.

For those of you who care about such things, she has a Voith-Schneider propeller system.

Mahalo to Michael MacDonald, Rick Wilson, and Whit Olson. Special thanks to Captain Ross Bright and Ryan Cabral.
With the Chilean Navy’s barquentine Esmeralda at Pier 9, of course I had to go to the harbor and get photos.
I arrived early enough to catch the hoisting of the colors (U.S. and Chile) and ensign.
Ensign being hoisted on the staff at the stern of the ship:
Since she is a navy ship, there are guns on deck:
There was a sign by the gangway saying that the ship would be open to the public starting later on that morning. Unfortunately, I had to go to work. So, I made plans to return in the afternoon.
Crest on end of bridge wing:
Nice star on wood grating near gangway:
Wheel and bell:
Fancywork on rail:
Circular crest just forward of the bridge:
