    Cool was the stepped hull on the coastal boat.

    Great Harbors in Town

    I noticed two more Great Harbors at the marina today.
    The earlier N47 is moving out of the hurricane zone while the two N37s are bound for inter-coastal delivery, if I recall correctly.

    I, too, found it very interesting. Quite Jules Verne-esque.

    Amazing what can be dug up. This BBC report is about a 15th century vessel that has been uncovered in an old river channel.

    The Broads are not natural as was once thought, but are the result of digging for peat.

    Southern England has been sinking for thousands of years, whilst Scotland is rising, due to glacial rebound.

    However, sea levels are rising only by 1-2 mm per year. Tidal gauge data are NOT the rate of sea level rise, for a couple of reasons. What we are seeing is the rate of global sea level rise PLUS the tidal effect from the sun, the moon, and the shape and resonant frequency of the basin.

    Cordially,
