Other Boats on the Bay

By handlerstudio  
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A lot of sailors, if they tire of the "work" of running a sailboat, move on to trawlers. You aim them and they go...and they are not speedboats, kind of pretty, and modest boats....not like the Cigarette Boats, which some of my crew thinks are compensation for an inadequate male organ....those those are not her words. We do see them now and then on the Bay. Two huge engines, burn a gallon a minute (Conspicuous consumption in a time of climate change). The other boat, in the version is a Chris Craft or similar boat....built almost a hundred years ago....a tour de force of great woodworking and maintenance of "bright work".

We leave for the Bay tomorrow afternoon, return Sunday night. Probably sail up the Chester River to the Corsica River. As always, I get as many photos as I can....and often cannot, as I am often at the helm as captain, and hard to be shooting at the same time. Have a good weekend, friends.

The Chris Craft is unmistakable for it's excellent workmanship. We used to have 3 or 4 here on the lake, but I haven't seen them lately.
(no frost yet here close to the water. There has been several frosts in town.)

A great set of powered watercraft Peter !!
I love the lines of most sailboats, but I understand the appeal of a power boat!!
The tyrant tested positive, I see !!
