Images of the day - towing in Newport

As we approach Valentine's Day, we spend a lot of time servicing and polishing the gondolas. The other day, senior gondolier Joey Hamamoto and I hauled one of the gondolas out of the water for some "under-the-boat" mechanical work. Here are some photos I took of the towing portion of the adventure.
The gondolas pictured are 25' motorized vessels with mahogany decks, built by Don Curtis.

I threw this one in just because I like the shimmer on the water.
