    CaptDag, You might try doing a Print Screen and crop-out the picture(s) you want to display, and repost. I'm interested.

    The pictures don't work but it can be seen clearly on Google maps. Just search Patterson, LA and scroll West to the bridge.

    your photos don't help much so I am not able to say other than she is 1960's European built probably for some government service like training or patrol although she does have a few characteristics which look Japanese.

    I stand in abject defeat...sorry

    I ran a crew boat to that dock for a few weeks in the late '90's. Wax Lake outlet has a lot of current. That ship wasn't there at the time, just a big molasses barge a few hundred feet South.

    I am right with you. Could be that or a pilot boat. There was a similar looking vessel down anchored off of Isla Mujeres, Mexico for some time. It was being used at the time as a charter dive vessel, and was an old Dutch pilot boat. Could also be an ex research or fisheries boat.

    Looks a bit like the Pirate Radio ship, minus the masts.
