I let the photos speak for themselves, with short captions as they were found on the back of the photos, which were mailed from the UK in April 2014. I encourage readers to send in photos too. Short essays on each of the ships photographed here appear under their own individual blog posts.
Abilin, Long Island, Detained 1998, Sank as [or on?] reef, 2007
Captain Moxey, Emmett Cephas (white hull), & 1 other boat (left), Potter’s Cay c.2000.
Cavalier I, Potter’s Cay – not strictly a mailboat, owned by Cavalier Construction Company.
Emmett Cephas, Potter’s Cay, c.2000 – she sank in 2001
Grand Master (front), North Cat Island Special (grey hull), Mia Dean (red stripe), Potter’s Cay Dock, Nassau, with both Paradise Island bridges in background, c.2001
Grand Master (left), North Cat Island Special, and Mia Dean from the bridge, c.2000 – see this blog for individual essays or posts with photos of each vessel.
Lisa J with the Lady Mango alongside, Andros, c.2000
Lisa J preparing to load or discharge cargo of cement bags and bricks, Andros, c.2000.
Marcela III from starboard bow, Potter’s Cay Dock, Nassau, Bahamas, c 2000. Note the boat trailer slung haphazardly over the bow – the wheels hanging over the port side. Also one wonders what the “T” emblazoned on the bow stood for….
Mia Dean and North Cat Island Special from the water, Potter’s Cay Dock, c.2000
North Cat Island Special at Potter’s Cay Dock listing slightly to port, c.2000
North Cat Island Special with cargo of a truck on the fore deck, Potter’s Cay Dock, c.2000.
Treasure Lady, Potter’s Cay Dock, Nassau, 2000 (I believe she served Andros). She was built in 1981 as an offshore supply vessel in Morgan’s City, Louisiana. Still in service, she looks a bit worse for wear in this photo.
