Poseidon Revisited

A few months ago I posted an entry called "Poseidon Lives!", which has proven to be very popular among readers. It focused on a visit to the Los Angeles Maritime Museum and to the model ship used in 1972's "Poseidon Adventure." I've decided to post a few more photos from my visit since I'm only allowed to upload a few at a time.

A view of the aft docking gear that no longer exists on the Queen Mary. All of it was removed during an unsympathetic renovation in the 1980s.

A view of the Poseidon's stern, rudder and port propellers.

Yours truly standing beside the model. This should give you an idea as to how massive it is!
