Our friends at GCaptain.com had an interesting post today: This (Illegal) ‘Urbex’ Video from Inside the Costa Concordia Wreck is Super Creepy Here’s the video but make sure you visit their website for more explanation and for a link to a photo gallery.
Strange. Interesting. Spooky.
I love this short film about life, photography and 2 large boats about 100 yards apart on the beach. Enjoy.
Check out the barge scenes!

Now will he step out of the shadows to accept this most prestigious award?!
In any case, congratulations and thanks for all of your contributions to the maritime world!

I’m sure there won’t be a dry eye in the room after watching this video. Oh, the internet is a wonderful thing!

Moby-Monday is back and inspired by an extraordinary event organized by the New Bedford Whaling Museum. From all accounts the 15th Annual Moby-Dick Marathon was a great success!
I took my seven-year old son Luke to the Seamen’s Bethel on Saturday for Chapters 7 (The Chapel), 8 (The Pulpit) and 9 (The Sermon). Since I am on the Board of Managers of the New Bedford Port Society I am obviously biased, but there is no better place to experience a Moby-Dick reading than the place where Melville actually worshiped. Here are a few pictures and a video from that experience.
After taking this in, the tide of Moby-Dick enthusiasts carried us across the street to the Jacob’s Family Gallery in the Whaling Museum, the home port of the Moby-Dick Marathon, where there was a full house and lots of great energy.
On Sunday mornings, we typically listen to classical music but this week we tuned into the livestream of the event. While listening Luke was hard at work in the corner with his carpenter’s kit and by mid-morning he had built a whaleship for my office! The extraordinary convergence and power of great art and new technology in action inspiring a young boy to dream and create!
Thanks and congratulations to the New Bedford Whaling Museum for putting on a great show! Using the livestream and an active Twitter feed, people were able to enjoy the experience without actually having to be present. Of course, there is no substitute for being there in body, soul and spirit. The New Bedford Whaling Museum is an extraordinary small museum that keep getting better. I’m already looking forward to the 16th Annual Moby-Dick Marathon!
