Chasing the Queen
This moment lasted only a split second -- and then the wave
flattened, the boats aligned themselves and the big ship turned more
to starboard. The wave reared up after the fishing boat on the upper
left cut off a cabin cruiser that turned sharply to the left to avoid
it. It all happened as the QM2 arrived in San Francisco for its maiden
visit on February 4, 2007. We were lucky to remain upright in our
little ship the Pat. Pending, thanks to the sure hand of captain Mel
Owen. (The Owens have had this 50-foot wooden motor yacht in their
family since the 1930s and I am glad to say it remains seaworthy
despite this wave off of our bow). One more note: I happened to sit
next to a fishing boat captain at the Lighthouse Diner in Sausalito
six years and twelve days after this shot. And he told me that he was
a herring boat skipper and that he too had been out that day to see
the Queen. I quickly pulled out my iphone with this photo -- not him,
but he lit up and told me that aluminum herring boat on the left was
"No Limit" captained by Walter McCarthy. That's Walter on
deck. Sadly Walter passed away earlier this season (November, 2012).
Thanks to the skipper i was able to contact Walter's son. i am hoping
to send his wife a print..
