Well, there it is then. She’s all painted and she’s the prettiest boat in the harbor… again! Her bottom’s all clean and she’s gonna be fast, well, as fast as an old fat bottomed wooden boat can be! Jeeze, now if she could only stay that way!
Anyway, the schooners are startin’ to arrive for the Gloucester Schooner Festival and ol’ Jesse Boyce is going to be the “Belle of the Ball”, representing her home port as she dose. As I look out at her, gently tugging on her mooring, I guess that it is all worth it and I’m sure proud to be her skipper!
Now, where’s that rum bottle and the ibuprofen???
