Is that the right pic? It looks like a photo and it is a marlin not a swordfish.

Sorry,
It's a painting - pen & Acrylic and the fish can be whatever you want it to be if you buy the painting - a marlin or a swordfish.

That is a great painting of a marlin.

Swordfish do look different though.

I like the realistic scene of the rough seas in the gulfstream as well.

A swordfish swatting at a pod of squid would make a good painting.

I became a Navy Yoeman because most of them get shore jobs with Navy food.

Funny, I asked my son several times why he wanted to put himself in a situation like that when he was in the Coast Guard...Said he couldn't explain why, he just did...
Great pics Frank!

I've always had great admiration for those who worked in the Coast Guards' Lifeboat Service and the Humane Society Life Saving service before them. Those on the Cape had a motto, "You have to go out but, you don't have to come back." and many didn't. Here's an old picture of a surfboat being launched from the Nauset Station in Chatham. I'm going to do a painting of it, just for myself.

I think that is one of those self righting boats that some company wanted to sell to the military. The boat might flip over but in a given amount of time comes back upright.

Lots to be said for bolting down the furniture and wearing a seat belt and of course dinner is on the ceiling and over there on the walls but for rescue in high surf it makes sense.

I don't think so, Merl. It is a plane ole New England dory like we used to rent. The self righting the CG uses are 40 footers, complete with seat belts, which they tested in the Oregon surf. But yuz can check because I really don't know.
