Nice ones Morgan. I like the Fezza, but a little more work on it wouldn't hurt (more pronounced dutch angle, cooler WB)
Here's a South African Gripen from 2012, just got uploaded today though:

Thanks for that. Now I have yet another thing in my long list of reasons to hate living in Texas. What a beautiful place!
Is there anything good about living in Texas?

I was glad to have carried Eos M in the pocket. Randomly ended up at the Chinese New Year Parade.
Went to Tacoma on Monday with some friends in search of a couple of new shipwrecks on they Hylebos Waterway. These wrecks first appeared on the DNR list and then I later found them on Google Earth, but they don't always stay put. Both wrecks were supposed to be fishing tenders in the 170 foot range. They had been abandoned and lived in Seattle for years before being moved to Tacoma for scrapping. Before that could happen one of the sank and tried to drag the other down with it.
On the way we saw the old ferry Kalakala. She was built as the San Francisco Bay ferry Peralta, but was burned to the waterline in an arson. Puget Sound navigation Company (the Black Ball Line) bought the hulk and towed it to Seattle where she was rebuilt as the world's first streamlined ferry. She served until the 1960s when she was retired and eventually ended up as a warehouse in Alaska. A Seattle businessman discovered her there while on a fishing trip and brought her back for restoration, but that hasn't happened. Currently the vessel is owned by a batshit crazy guy who has dreams of restoring her to her former glory, but no money and it's a race against time before she rolls over and sinks in the channel.
Paddling south of the Kalakala there was no sign of the other two wrecks and I really thought we had been skunked. It happens. From the satellite photos I knew where they should be, but there was no sign of a couple of 170 foot ships. What we finally did find was the stern section of one of them hidden behind a boathouse with about two-thirds of it underwater.
This is the Helena Star, a 167 foot fish tender originally built as the Fraternite. Fish tenders are larger vessels which haul supplies out to the actual fishing boats and bring their catches back for processing at the canneries.
The other tender that was there was the Golden West, but as far as I can tell when the Helena Star sank she was towed away and scrapped before she too could go to the bottom. The State is planning to salvage and scrap the Helena Star in July after the salmon run, assuming the budget holds.
And finally, here is a picture of my friend Susan hitting the water while seal launching off the bank by the wreck. According to her GPS she reached 7.5 miles per hour going down that hill.
I'm working on a book called "Washington Shipwrecks you can visit", which should be finished in the year 2000-and hell freezes over.
