    "Montigne" looks like a nice boat to go on...I am still wondering though, why the bow ornament was removed?

    I was tied up in Port Vell at the same dock as Rasa about 3 years ago. One of my past crew is there now. Seeing these pics makes me miss it there!

    CapLady, did you enjoy in BCN?

    Good week to take shots of yachts... good weather... good yachts...
    I think this summer will be a good summer for "Yachts in Barcelona"

    First of all, some "Shubra II" details, with garage open doors.

    Yeah I loved it there. I spent about 3 months there. I liked Palma a lot too. I was based in Palma for two seasons. I made a lot of friends in both places.

    I'm sure I'll be going back one of these days.
