    That's some funny shit right there. Yea, but it manages the rare feat of being so ugly it's cute! It's Timmy the Trawler, cousin to Thomas the Tank Engine.

    Hey, hey - you're hitting pretty close to home there! Grew up traipsing the continent in a VW Campmobile, and own a VW Eurovan MV Weekender nowadays, which, come to think of it, traipsed all over the continent too. The first time I was a kid; my folks were German so we took German-style vacations - six weeks at a time and they always involved conquering territory (Northern Quebec, the Southwest, Northern Rockies, etc.) Did the same with the newer one with my kids (Baja, PNW, Southeast, etc.) Short of sailing, some of the best experiences we've ever had. Similar living conditions too. Heh. What nationality were your folks the second time you were a kid?

    Ha! Nope. But I am just the teeniest-tiny bit of a romantic despite my deep-seated cynicism. Your location: Newyorkachusetts. Just curious, Yankees or Red Sox? EIther one's ok with me. Well, I would like to think that. Neither, really. Was never a fan of baseball, though I will watch a Sox game with my dad when we visit him in Charlestown. I prefer football, but haven't followed it in years. Was a big Giants fan back in the Simms, Bavaro, Taylor days.

    There's a small, dark part of me that likes this boat. This is the type of thing one lives on when one is a completely disaffected misanthrope. It sits in the cheapest marina way upriver, or by the water treatment plant or cannery, on a pier that nobody seems to own, and doesn't move except once every 3 - 4 years when he motors, laboriously, down the way to get a short haul for the bottom. He has little use for anyone or anything and keeps to himself. He's evasive and distrusting, but polite enough if you don't ask prying questions. There's a rumor he worked for the government, "fixing" problems in far away places. He doesn't seem to work nowadays. Just spends most days fishing of the breakwater or walking into town to read in the library. He feeds the 3-legged dog that hangs around, but says it's not his; it's just a stray. If, after a few drinks at the wharf watering hole, you can get him to talk, he says simply that he likes it there because he lives on a boat on the water, and for as long as he can remember he liked the sound of the waves and the smell of low tide.

    Ze, you really need to attach a small titanium plate on the bow. Just for laughs.
