My View from Long Beach

yeah, i know its not a tropical island in the Caribbean, and we don't get alot of yachts in too often, but here are the home port yachts here, and i'll get photos of the yachts as they come in.

REVERIE, 97 foot horizon


Scorpius, 87 foot research vessel turned Private yacht



i'll post more as i get them, there are also a few race sleds in the harbor, i can post those if people wish.

Mike,
What's that in the water? Looks like ice but the land looks dry and hot.

what looks like ice, is the light reflecting off the water, simply as that.

Greetings from Wilmington... right around the corner from LB, and just up the coast from NB. Speaking of NB, how can you afford it down there? Slip prices (if you can find a slip anymore for anything > than 60') are now $30+/ft.

Anyway, there are occasional decent size yachts at this end of LA Harbor. Will try and take some photos and post, if that's OK

Chuck

That is very hard to believe that is just a reflection off the surface.. It certainly looks like patches of surface ice.

i can garantee that it's not ice, the futherest north this yacht has been is like Santa Barbara, no where near far enough to get ice patches in the water.

Did you get a little snow by you this week? Heard there was a blizzard north of LA (my guess in the mountains).
