    New Boat

    Some of you know we were getting a new ferry where I work. I know Furman and Joe had been tracking the delivery trip some. Here's a few pictures, one of the boat and two from the wheelhouse, where there are no wheels.

    Susan - love your way of thinking
    @Mike - HD in the back ... do you mean as an "anchor"?

    Here the deck hands park the bikes in the front of the boat and then let us off first. They should
    put the HD in the back though.

    Powhatan was the name the English gave to the Indian Chief who ruled a good part of eastern Virginia when they arrived. Powhatan was more a title than a proper name. His real name was Wahunsenaca, figured no one would be able to say that on the marine radio. Markings are for mobility vehicles (handicap) if necessary to allow access to a restroom and life raft boarding station.

    Mmmmm .... that new boat smell

    I know its not, but it sure looks top heavy.

    What does the name Powhatan mean?

    EDIT: Oh yeah ... All those white markings on the front deck .... is that reserved motorcycle parking / no cars or trucks allowed ?
