Nome Backgrounds

Barrabas 1 - September 2006

Barrabas is dwarfed amongst the quay and dock buildings in the background. Towering above her is the port crane that has already lifted her once before without the need to first unstep the mast. In the foreground is a typical local workboat. A rugged and seaworthy vessel desinged for Alaskan waters. During the summer months, Nome is a busy port serving fishing boats and supply vessels during those frantic months before the ice moves south once more and returns Nome to the deep freeze
