G and Gy,
I'm sitting here in my office, singing to myself, "We shall overcome, we shall overcome..."

There was no racial connotation in the original context of the Joel Chandler Harris "Uncle Remus" story. The stories, as it happens, were about anthropomorphic animal characters who spoke in phonetically-spelled Negro dialect, but so what? The tar baby was not a character but, as the name indicates, a blob of tar molded in the shape of a baby that certain characters made as a lure to try to trap the main character, Brer Rabbit. Any negative racial connotation is in the minds of people who are ignorant of the term's literary origin.

It is a shame to see any boat, powerboat or otherwise, suffer such a fate.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

If the 61' Weaver on yachtworld.com is any indication, about 1900 gallons.

Literary origins notwithstanding, I don't think you'd be long for this world if you called a black guy "tarbaby".
