Identify unusual bowsprit equiptment.

I've seen it before but can't quite place it.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Bet that works better than a CQR

The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.

I found this on the internet.

"A figurehead is an ancient maritime tradition of placing a sculpture of some being or diety, on the prow of a ship for protection from evil spirits and to terrify enemy. The general practice was introduced with the galleons of the 16th century. It was the tradition of Viking ships to bear a figurehead of menacing appearance."

Clearly the photo shows a Viking warship.
