Ballast Point Pictures
San Diego, California

Jack Hester recently passed along a picture taken of Ballast Point in 2002 (bottom right picture) which prompted the following pictures to be displayed as a group. Each picture can be found elsewhere on the Picture Pages but I thought it would be fun to see them together as Ballast Point was home port for Snook a good part of it's life. I am sure many of us have fond (and not so fond) memories of being on Snook homeported in San Diego. If you have any other pictures of Ballast Point floating around in a shoebox or photo album that you can scan I would like to add them to this page.

Please contact Bob Pettengill if you can contribute.
