Here is a picture heading outbound, toward San Juan and passing an inbound tug and tow. I am a little embarassed by this one with the stain that I am putting on the sky. The best I can figure is that this is a shot that I took just after I took a boat over after some time off. One of the first things that I would do when we got down to San Juan was set the injector racks while the engine was still hot. That kept that nasty black cloud from following us.

I had the opportunity to make a westbound crossing on the SS United States in the spring of '63. Not as crew, but as a passenger. If there was any trip I'd love to do again, it would be that.
I have a photo of live steam coming out of the horn, something we'll never see again. I'd post it, but still haven't figured out how to post here.
