October 17th, 2017 : This site has been repaired !!!
Special Note :
Friday ( June 30th ) I was confronted with an email from Photobucket.com. On this server, I have parked about 80% of all photos for the sites.
I started 10 years ago and never got any problems. In this email stated that no permission was given to use the parked pictures for a web site.
But they allow me to download the so called embedded HTML code for that photo. Promptly, most of the photos were no longer visible.
I have started to repair work now and put the photos on other reliable servers.
Will be busy for a long time.  At the place where a photo is missing, the entry is "Pls update yr account to enable 3rd party hosting".
I hope that I will be able to get it back up soon and ask everyone to be patient.
An X behind the item in the Index means, repaired !!!
Repairs starting with the oldest vessels !!
