Some of the boats in the boat yard have definitely seen better days.
Ah, perhaps your title is accurate, but the rust adds so much to the colour and character. This is great Jack!

@bluechameleon: Thanks, Sharon.
very nice capture
20 Aug 2009 5:21am
and they now posses some GREAT COLOURS
I agree... Just a good paint layer and it'll fly again over seas....
20 Aug 2009 5:31am
Great light for this rusted ship. Colours are incredible
20 Aug 2009 5:39am
Sure...but then so have we all! Age only enriches us as it seems to have done with this great old vessel...love the color and detail here Jack:)
20 Aug 2009 6:07am
@Pavan Kaul: I can easily identify with this old vessel.
As others have said...the rust and other colors and details work in your favor for a beautiful portrait of a boat.
20 Aug 2009 6:29am
More like experienced and still raring to go :P I hope.
20 Aug 2009 6:37am
@Nicholas: I hope so, too.
I think so but what a stunning reflection
20 Aug 2009 7:00am
So much detail....wonderful portrait of a working boat!
20 Aug 2009 7:24am
So much character and history in this shot.Great stuff
20 Aug 2009 9:07am
Obviously yes ! But it remains beautiful ! I love these old boats ! Great colors and details on the rust Jack !
20 Aug 2009 9:18am
@zOOm: Thanks, Florence.
Very clear ans sharp shot!
20 Aug 2009 9:53am
Rusty old boat, great shot Jack.
20 Aug 2009 10:01am
This old boat probably has lots of life and service left. But it does remind me a bit of Quint's boat in JAWS.
20 Aug 2009 11:32am
busy dock and so many beautiful colors... and good reflection also... nice composition
20 Aug 2009 11:33am
@MJ: Thank you.
20 Aug 2009 11:44am
As busy as this shot is, for some reason, I really adore it!!! The colors are just fantastic!!! Beautiful Image !!!
20 Aug 2009 11:59am
@Susan: Thanks, Susan.
It still sits above the water line. The rustic wear adds to the character. Remarkable clarity and colors.
20 Aug 2009 12:02pm
@Barbara: Thanks, Barb.
stunning image with great reflection from the sea and well composed...
20 Aug 2009 12:24pm
@Vachel: Thank you.
The light in this photo is amazing. I like how it picks out the beautiful colours in this boat and the reflections. Great photo
20 Aug 2009 12:35pm
and yet...what a fantastic photo it turns out to be...bravo!!!
20 Aug 2009 12:43pm
Joli ce bateau qui pourrait nous racconter tant d'histoires
20 Aug 2009 12:56pm
Wonderful! I bet this is still a hard-working boat!
20 Aug 2009 1:32pm
I bet that boat has some great stories to tell! Great work, Jack!
20 Aug 2009 1:57pm
@Betty: Thanks, Betty. I agree about the stories.
I like your tittle... and your photo
20 Aug 2009 2:00pm
Good job John!
20 Aug 2009 2:03pm
In one word - OUTSTANDING !!!!
20 Aug 2009 2:33pm
@MARIANA: Thanks, Mariana.
remind me plenty of things, great job
20 Aug 2009 3:12pm
@kerfendal: Merci, me too.
Un beau vieux bateau! Beaux reflets!
20 Aug 2009 3:22pm
The salt-laden environment is very harsh and causes lots of damage to boats. This is a fine example. Shipyards restore vessels like this one, but it must be very costly and time consuming. Fine post.
20 Aug 2009 3:24pm
Do they still use this boat? Nice shot.
20 Aug 2009 5:40pm
My family is from Coos Bay, Oregon. Amazing. I never see co-incidences like that! How far from Coos Bay is this shot take? doesn't look like that boat could make it to North Bend...
20 Aug 2009 7:02pm
@don: It's about 3-5 km. to the west.
A great shot of this hard working fishing boat. A lot elbow grease and a lot of money would probably make it all shiny again. It wouldn't be nearly as photogenic though.
20 Aug 2009 7:04pm
20 Aug 2009 8:22pm
extra ! like the feeling
20 Aug 2009 8:59pm
The beauty of age. I love the look of rusted metal John.
20 Aug 2009 9:34pm
@Ana Lúcia: Thanks; me, too.
Wow! Absolutely outstanding! The clarity, tones and framing are superb.
20 Aug 2009 9:55pm
@Magda: Thank you.
Talk about a rusty old tub...but still a great capture with lots of character.
20 Aug 2009 10:41pm
I don't think I would dare taking that into the open sea :)
I love the colours and detail!
The clarity is outstanding
21 Aug 2009 12:05am
The color of the rust is so appealing. Wonderful find and very well shot.
21 Aug 2009 1:10am
Waiting to stop working for having a new painting...
21 Aug 2009 1:47am
nice shot! great colors and lines
21 Aug 2009 2:53am
It is beautiful as it is but maybe a lick of paint would make the neighbours happy.
21 Aug 2009 3:08am
That boat looks darn tough! Great shot and good clarity and color on these!
21 Aug 2009 3:45am
@Scott Schilling: Thanks, Scott. Great working boats in that harbor.
A boat doesn't get this good lookin by just moorin' around. This isn't old age. This is character. That's not rust, it's petina. A great shot Jack.
21 Aug 2009 3:51am
@Lee: Thanks, Lee.
Ah, but what days it has seen... Great character... no, great rich character in that old tub. Wonderful, Jack!!
21 Aug 2009 3:58am
@amy: Many thanks.
Always feel touched by old rusting boats, those are no exception ~
21 Aug 2009 6:23am
this is a craziness of masts (I'm sure that's the collective noun :-)
great composition and vivid colours.
21 Aug 2009 7:27pm
imagine if truck drivers kept their vehicles this long :)
22 Aug 2009 3:57pm
Beautiful shot beautiful colors
23 Aug 2009 12:47pm
Great colours and the reflection balances the shot so well.
25 Aug 2009 12:25am
@Glen's Photos: Thank you.
Great colors and reflections... This old rusty boat has its charm... and stories to be told us...
25 Aug 2009 9:12am
@Francesc B.: Isn't it the truth.
