Hello shipmates. I am trying to post these from July 13-15th's trip to and from St Helens OR for the Maritime Heritage Classic Festival. We participated in the boat show along with the Portland Stern wheeler and numerous other classic boats and cars. We even set up a booth to sell stuff. Here are some photos and videos for you to see.
Thanks Jerry PT658

Maybe one day soon Italeri will see these photos and decide to do a 1/35 scale model kit of her. What an opportunity the'd havebeing to measure an actul vessel.

Cheers from Peter
