WateryWednsday, The Razzo back from the Shipyard

This is the way the Razzo look just after we moved to Gloucester. The date on this photo is December, 2006.

On April 2, 2009, I took this photo. The Razzo is showing the signs of being a working boat. It is difficult to keep metal from rusting and wood from rotting on the ocean.

A couple of weeks ago, I saw the Razzo hauled out and sitting in the shipyard. In a very short time, the Razzo is back in the harbor.

Your photos from the daily life in the harbour is always interesting. I can smell my hometown....

And interesting to see the change on a boat, after only a few years at see! Very nice shots - and I love the last one! Great lines and reflections!

And - a bit fun to see those two last photos; Razzo is in front of the same boat in those shots!

Hi Hip Chick, This is one of the smallest trawlers we have in the harbor, but it's a hard worker.

Hi Kendris, Tricia, Nature Ramblings, Ewok, I was amaized on how fast the got it into the boat yard and back into the harbor. The Gloucester shipyards do good work.

Hi Joan, That would be cool!

Hi Pam, Glad to see you stop by.

Hi Valkyrien, Gloucester is an interesting place. Every day it is different. Yet some things don't change. Hence the same boats tied up.

Ahhhh ... life came full circle for the Razzo ! :-)

Wonderful photos ... I really like all the reflections and the glimpse into harbour life..

Fascinating watching the stages of the Rozzo through your photos! But I must admit, the romantic in me likes the "peeling" version in the second photo!

These are nice. It's so interesting to see things in someone else's world. It was looking a little sea worn there for a moment. :-)
