At Aloha Tower

I had some time to kill, so I went up to the 10th floor observation deck of Aloha Tower…a lonely sentinel in the midst of a maze of construction barricades.

What looks like a nice jacuzzi for two on A:

(Nice job varnish job on the rail.)

Light Maui with some work being done at the stern:

There goes Honolulu:

How long before that decaying corner of the pier falls in?

Back at ground level…the target of the day, Satsumaseiun Maru, along with Honolulu and Maui:

Wild Thing (no pic) is still tied up right at the middle of Pier 9. A bit awkward.

Approaching the pier, the crew at their stations:

Love the traditional hitching.

Ready with a heaving line:

Captain Anzai (no, I don’t know him, I just read his name tag) and pilot, Captain Tom Collins:

Nice smile!

Job done!

Passing by Robert C. Seamans, saw this fish tail at the end of the bowsprit:
