What I found on the boat

After moving aboard and investigating, and mostly tossing out all the detritus from several previous owners I came across this tucked in the nav station. It delights me every time I read it:

Love Song

A soft and gentle morning,
The kiss of spring upon the air,
Bring My love and I together,
No other soul was there.

A simple wrap was all she wore,
Accenting every line.
My reeling heart could scarce believe
This form divine was mine.

My mind recalled the summer days
We'd shared beneath the sun.
She, responding to my every touch,
And we had moved as one.

I slipped the covering gently down,
My hand caressed her side.
Then a feeling grew within me
That would not be denied.

She had no voice to tell me,
But her need was just as real,
So I got the anti-fouling out
And began to paint her keel.
And began to paint her keel.

by the late P/R/C Alexander Roulstone, N

Re: What I found on the boat

Grandma loved these - taught me this one when I was a teenager.


A man came to the door and I let him in.
I said, "Take it out and let's begin"
He took me here and he took me there and when he was done
We laughed and laughed at what fun we'd had
Taking my photograph.


We still find legacy items hidden in newly discovered places on our boat. The last big one was two folding wooden deck chairs in a locker we didn't even know about.
