Cette fois-ci, j'ai vu ton nom.
Picturit: It is not that difficult to spot it this time, Martine. Thank you.
Astrid.
Sitting on the dock of the bay...
Picturit: Indeed so, Larry. I love the way they are nicely stacked together.
Astrid.
That's kind of a remarkable sight to me, Astrid... forgive my ignorance - I've always lived land locked - but how are they balanced up there?
Picturit: The boats are in some kind of racks to keep them up-right. Over the winter part of this freezes and might do damage to the boats. In Hollandshire we have these boats on shore just on land. In Norway because of no space to do so, they built a ramp and 'park' the boats on top of that.
I always love to see the different solutions they have for the boats to survive winter.

I think they like to keep their craft high&dry, Astrid!
Picturit: They don't like wet feet, Ray wink
Astrid.
Definitely the meaning for "high and dry," Astrid. I like that you, too, are high and dry. smile
Picturit: I made sure that I was not going to get wet feet, Ginnie smile 'High and dry' indeed. always fun to see boats like these.
Astrid.
En attente et surtout au sec..bonne journée Astrid
Picturit: Thank you very much, Claudine.
Have a great weekend.

Maybe, the boats will be restored or preserved during the rough winter sea. A fine observation!
Picturit: Mostly this will happen just before they are put back into the water, Philine. I always like these places, amazing what we don't see of ships like these.

An unusual "Boat Friday" with those "beached" boats, Astrid
Picturit: Those are the only beached boats I had seen in this way. I have to admit that I like your beached boats better.... more romantic, if that is the right word, Lisl.

Flying boats - a brilliant idea Astrid. Then they don't get inconveniently wet
Picturit: Now you make it even more exciting, 'flying boats' I can live with that, Chris.
Astrid.
Don't the boats like getting wet Lady P ?
Picturit: I might even tell you that they are afraid of water and they all 'chickened out'... grin...

This looks a great place though the boat maned a
Astrid seems to be hanging a bit close to the edge Astrid. I hope that is not a metaphor.
Picturit: hmmmm, let me think about that, Chad.
I always I thought I would leave work unnoticed... guess what, I need a physiotherapist to get rid of a 'tennis-elbow', haven't been on the court for 10 years wink... the therapist told me that my body is saying 'enough is enough'... what a timing that is.....

With all the boats out the water, one may think this is an acid pool, or Jaws is around.
Picturit: I go for Jaws today, Louis, get some excitement around here grin...
Astrid.
Wat bijzonder die verschillende hoogten van de steigers.
En staat daar nu Astrid op die boot ?...yes toch ?
Echt leuk ;-0
Picturit: Ja daar staat echt 'Astrid' op die boot. Waar het kan zet ik mijn handtekening in de foto en soms moeten mensen echt goed kijken waar ik hem 'nu weer' gezet heb. Dat is een beetje 'mijn ding'... vaak weet ik al vòòr dat ik een foto maak waar mijn handtekening komt. Of ik doe 'zoiets'..... http://picturit.shutterchance.com/image/2018/03/05/black-monday/
Goed weekend,
Astrid.
Good solution to lack of flat land. Very good.
Picturit: I think so too, Mary. It really had my intention.
Astrid.
Sure, what's up? I would have some doubts to leave a boat there. Impressive anyway, I never thought they could build a boat depot up there.I wonder how they go down into the sea
Picturit: This is how it is done in the Netherlands too, they take the boats out of the water put them ashore and over winter you can clean the bottom of the boat and do some repairs. Here are two YouTubes to give the gist.

I wonder how they get those yachts up there.
Picturit: I just gave Claudio two YouTubes to do the opposite, you will get the gist how they will do the other way around.

Fascinating to see them stored like this. Those in the right are very high indeed; perhaps in a workshop of some sort?
Picturit: On the right those are life boats, they are launched like this:

It is not the same place but it will be 'dropped' from that height, very fascinating, Alan.
Nice shot, Astrid, thanks for the explanation.
Picturit: It is fascinating stuf indeed. Here are some videos that show how/what.

hi Astrid... i see your boat hanging on the lift...
Mary told me that you tried to sneak your name into my picture today... it made me laugh....petersmile
Picturit: I can see why she told you that... amazing coincident.
Have a great day, Peter.
Astrid.
i think it is the first time that i see so many boats stacked on the pier, Astrid.
Picturit: We don't often see them stacked on a pier, we mostly have them on land.

ik vraag me af- waarom en waarvoor- je boot daar zo hoog staat Astrid

fijne zondag
Picturit: Dat is een platform waarvan de reddingsboot gelanceerd wordt om een snellere start te hebben.
