A deep-V lesson
I enjoy your magazine Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors, and consider myself fairly well read and traveled.
I think however, that a minor improvement would be helpful to your readers in future issues.
The things cormorants do
Cormorants. Ah, yes (MBH&H, Winter 2014). They are a constant summer presence. There’s been one of them visiting in mid-September, past couple of years, that uses the bow of my 16' 1960s Whaler as a first-class fish-spotting platform, and first-class outhouse. Daily deposits.
Missing Phil Bolger
Thanks to Peter Spectre for “The Last Laugh” (A Postcard in Time, Issue #125, July 2013) about Phil Bolger and Dynamite Payson launching a folding schooner. Phil was noted for weird-looking boats and many people were skeptical about his designs.
Mapping the Coast
I enjoyed the article on geographical benchmarks very much, it was very interesting (“Discovering the Cornerstones of Maine’s Mapping History,” by Jane Crosen, July 2013).
Yes, there really are snow fleas...
Why red over white?
A Classic Whaler Rendezvous?
Worth its salt
I cannot put into words how very much I enjoyed “Requiem for a Schooner” in the July 2012 issue, and the photographs of such dear, wonderful people. Mr. Vitelli’s article alone makes the issue worth its salt. It’s a fine piece of writing.
