Capt. 58, what a lovely thing to say. I hope you can come again, too. It can really be overload on so many beautiful, pridefully maintained boats. One of the special ones last time was a MOBO (Oh horror! ;-) ) What my Mom would have called a speedboat, but all timber ('cept for the motor
, of course), all finished bright. Beautiful!
But for me the highlight last time was the steam powered timber dinghy! So cool. It's owner/builder had made a little feeder for it, and fed it bits of cast off engineering stakes (also timber) to burn, and off it went, silent, varnished, beautiful in every detail.... How cool!
The other thing that I always love when I am down here is how lovingly maintained the fishing
boats are. There's a whole large dock
space devoted to them. Here are working men
and women with pride in their vessels, and in showing them. I salute them!
