Sailing on the Chesapeake#6

By handlerstudio  

I find boat names to be at once entertaining...and often revealing about aspects of the owners....who they are...what they do for a living..and often a sense of humor. As we left the marina on Saturday morning, I gave my camera to Brett, one of our crew, with instructions to capture boat names on the way out. As captain....I needed to take the boat out....if yo do not stay in the channel, there is a high risk of going aground. Gail Force draws 4'11", and there is about 7-8' of water in the channel. The bottom of the Bay in most places is mud...and it generally shoals around points. We go out of Swan Creek, and the shoal extending from the point runs about 2 miles out before you can cross to the west...if that is where you want to go. With the lead photo....we can only guess what the name refers to.....others..therapists....judges, lawyers, accountants, and maybe an occasional swindler.

So, I guess this qualities for Silly Sunday....

Great idea for this themed set Peter ....number 4 Moondance has some lovely light shimmering off it. Wonder if that owner likes Van Morrisson ?
Best regards
