    You hang yourself with a rope, but you use a line to tie up a ship!

    Absolutely gorgeous shots of LST 325. As a crew member I've seen a LOT of photos of her and taken a lot myself, but these are exceptional. Thanks for sharing them.

    I was just curious if the artifacts you're referring to are actually the different colored strands in the 'LINE'?.....
    Here's a cropped shot of what I'm talking about....
    Thanks again and let me know if that's not it....

    I have to admit that those different coloured strands had me fooled into thinking they were sharpening artifacts as well.

    Hi, I am a crew member of LST 325. I remember you just by the description of your camera. Great perspective on the photos of the ship. I thought I would explain why you were not allowed close to the moring lines (ropes) that tied the ship to the riverfront. The guard was just doing his job. Those lines are nylon and were under a lot of stress due to the strong current. If one of those lines were to snap it could possibly kill anyone too close. It would be like a 300 foot slingshot.
    Your photos show good creativity. Keep up the good work. Thanks for visiting us.
    BTW, those particular lines are called Hawsers. :-)

    I believe those are what are referred to as "Tell-tales"; that is a couple of strands which will break at lesser working load than the line as a whole, the theory being that if you see those broken, the line is getting close to it's limit.
