I enjoy photos of this era and at some point I hope to get some of mine out here. I have photos of the sailors and dock workers, also. That photo of the Clarke in the floating drydock, that's got to be on the rare side.

I'll go out of sequence with my photos. This one was in a stack with some other photos.

My Dad was done sailing in 1945 after he was discharged from the U. S. Maritime Service. I wasn't born until 1952. It was my Dad who got me interested in boat watching and wanting to sail. Probably, along with my 9 years on the ore boats, I've been at it for 55 of my 65 years.

Garbear, Did your father and you ever sail on the same boat? I know at the Inland Fleet there were father and son on the same boat at the same time. D

The photo of when I think my Dad was on the L. E. Block, I don't know if he took the photo or if it was given to him. There's nothing on the back of the photo to say who the gentlemen were.
