Re: Does anyone know what this is??
Thanks for the quick replies! I knew someone would know.
svHyLyte, I think you've got the right of it, but maybe under the wrong name? Pylorus is a valve at the junction between the stomach and intestine, I think. My daughter had to have Pyloric valve surgery when she was 2 months old, so I know this....
Andy--The dam_ed "spell checker" on this machine thinks it knows more about sailing than do I. It is a Pelorus as in:
"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
