    In Southport, where the tide goes in and out perhaps miles over the warm sand, they used to use horses and carts for shrimping, but now they use these wonderful Mad Max rigs. When I first saw them, there were perhaps a dozen shrimper rigs, with booms for the nets and boilers on board; Now I think there is just one operating, plus some more conventional tractors and trailers.

    Found some old pics of geese attempting to heard me out of the local pond and a Great Blue Heron trying to hide under a tree. Not very good, first generation digital camera with telephoto lens -

    Lovely stem profile, reminds me of a Hereshoff 12-1/2, just a bit shallower . . . that stern suggests some interesting following seas have to handled on the way back to harbor. Obviously a developed design as well as a traditional one.

    It's relatively small at 15,000T but the energy in the collision is the equivalent of a family car crashing at a speed approaching the speed of sound . . .

    Sailors severely overestimated the size of the Kraken.

    That finger must be 40 feet wide and hundreds of feet tall.
