Name the Ship Game

Recommended Posts

Not exactly the name that I was looking for but the USCGC Acushnet (WMEC-167) did go by the name USS Shackle for a relatively short period at the start of its life.

Not the clearest picture but it will have to do.

Flag and name are wiped out.

One province or the other, what does it matter ;)

Holland Class protected cruiser. Six of them build. All of them photograhped at this specific location,

of which I am not copmpletely sure: I guess it is the Nieuwe Diep at the Den Helder Naval harbour.

The fun of those old postcards is that they are all the same, only the direction the smoke plume is going differs :)

Always a crowd on the Quay, as the ships were mostly going to the east (hence the white colour , and the sun-tent on the rear deck).

The most renowned of the cruisers was Gelderland, taking Kruger to Europe after the Boer-war. Getting a second life as German anti-aircraft ship in WWII (under the name of Niobe).

The other five were less famous, and were shorter lived.

 

 

Here's the next. Not too difficult, I think :)

I don't really feel up to hunting down a ship for you guys to guess right now so I hand this one over to whoever wants it.

This thread appears to be dormant..??

 

I was wondering if perhaps while waiting for someone to take up "querty2008" offer, I could tap into some of the maritime knowledge of the NRG membership, to help identify the vessel pictured below. I have an inkling of the identity, but am hoping to hear some more informed observations.

 

I found the picture while searching through some archives of my "Home-Port" of Newcastle NSW Australia.

 

The photo had no included information and was simply titled "unknown"....I renamed it Cutty..??? (highly doubtful).

 

Any assistance appreciated.

This thread is completely dead.

Don't think you'll get much response here ....

the pic is not in the list suggested by Carl, and the details in the pic are too vague to check whether it could be cutty.

Btw did cutty ever had 6 yards to her fore mast?

I only can find pics with 5 at the fore, and 6 to the main.

this ship has 6 on both

Most definitely not Cutty Sark. She never crossed 6 yards on the fore, only the main. Until 1885 when she was cut down. Hull is wrong for Cutty as well. Quarterdeck is off. That ship crosses upper and lower t'gallants and Cutty Sark only ever crossed single T'gallants. Double topsail's though as shown in the image. Dead thread.... resuscitating it?
