    "This boat sports a unique under 30' shortfin, tall cabin design." I ran it through the CA thesaurus. Unique: ill-conceived absurd bizarre foolish goofy insane irresponsible ludicrous odd outrageous preposterous ridiculous silly strange weird eccentric loony wild balmy beyond all reason cockeyed derisory fatuous foolhardy half-baked harebrained idiotic impracticable imprudent inane inappropriate nonsensical out of all reason peculiar puerile quixotic senseless short-sighted unworkable

    If anyone would be interested in a keel version of the Javelin here is a sweet deal on one, sitting on a private mooring in beautiful people land.

    Coolboats to admire

    Boat ID: Late 60's Sedan de Ville. Yes, very long overhangs. We call it a trunk but those wacky Brit's call it a boot I think. Never heard it referred to as an outboard well. No idea what kind of yacht that is.

    Rockport Disaster: Th-Th-Th-That's All Folks!

    The last few lines from the article that Maui linked to: The following is an article which appeared in "New England Magazine" in October, 1894. http://www.harbormasters.org/rockport/breakwater.shtml "What will the breakwater do for Rockport? Will it, as some have thought, cause the quiet little town to become a commercial centre? Will the magnificent harbor attract transatlantic steamship companies, and induce them to build piers into the blue waters of Sandy Bay? Will the rocky pastures of Cape Ann be made into streets, whereon large and costly buildings shall be erected? Will this New England community become in time the metropolis of the region? Probably not. But surely Rockport will become more and more a name dear to all who live upon the sea; for here the sailor will find a haven, a haven where he may lie in safety and laugh at the fury of the storm."

    Rockport Disaster: Th-Th-Th-That's All Folks!

    Maybe if this had ever been completed: In 1885, construction began on the second-largest deepwater harbor in the world—second only to Cherbourg, France—to be called the Sandy Bay National Harbor of Refuge. It would consist of a giant 9,000-foot granite breakwater that would offer safe harbor to over 5,000 vessels and enclose an area of 1,600 acres. It's an interesting subject with some good history out there on the www.

    You'd think. We stayed overnight at the float directly behind where these pics were taken from. Not much water at low tide. With the centerboard all the way up a Mariner goes sideways almost as willingly as it goes forward. Getting underway the next AM I managed to bump one of the moored lobster boats.

    Is there a word for the opposite of one upmanship?
