For the the December 2016 - January 2016 flagship, the theme will be at least 3 ferries in a picture.
(1) Any ferry (passenger or car) in the world is eligible. Seaspan (or similar) trailer vessels (self-propelled) are ok as well.
(2) Retired ferries (as long as they are in good condition) as well as ones under construction or at a shipyard/maintenance facility for whatever reason (as long as it's clear the boat is actually a ferry) are eligible as well.
(3) The ferries need to be prominent enough.
Combinations of in service and what is mentioned in (2) are allowed.
Entries will be accepted until 8:00 PM PST November 28.
I realize my Eagle Harbor aerial photo has more than 3 ferries in the picture. I am hoping that you are open to having 3 or more ferries in a photo. If not, can I get a variance since I think this is a unique photo given the vantage point? Thanks.
3rd and final entry - forgot I had this one in my archives: a glimpse of the Steel Electrics sitting at Eagle Harbor in 2009, about a week before they were towed down to Ensenada for their final disposition
Don't know if anyone can beat Kahloke's ferry-palooza shot of five boats, in terms of numbers... according to SC Commuter, Deas currently has six boats moored, but I'm not sure there's a vantage point where one could photograph them all, except from the air.
Tsawwassen has five berths, but are they ever all occupied? Have to ponder on that one.
