We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The Lobster Pot in P-town is indeed an old favorite. I remember it well from my youthful forays to the Cape in the 70's. What I don't remember is a leg hanging out of a window of a second story next to the restaurant.
That Cabo harbor pic is really interesting. Those open boats are called pangas. What is interesting is that the panga was designed by Yamaha for third world fishermen in the early '70s. That design is simple to build, length and beam are adjusted by a simple formula depending on the local conditions. If the hull looks familiar, that's because you see pictures of them all the time when the Somali pirates attack a ship - it's the main part of their pirate fleet.
The early '70s was an interesting period in boat design. Boston Whaler developed the 21' Outrage which, in my opinion anyway, is one of the best center console designs ever. They never quite caught on as many considered them ugly, but the sure as heck were seaworthy.
The best boat ever built that could be put on a trailer was the Master Marine 28' center console. These were built for the North Shore tuna trade by Master Marine of Gloucester, MA under license to the Unification Church. They were very sea worthy boats, easy to handle, could turn a fair amount of speed with the standard Evinrude 175 two stroke. The example has been restored, but it will give you the idea of what they looked like fully dressed out. A lot of fishermen hated Master Marine for building these boats for the Moonies, but that didn't mean they weren't good boats- which they most certainly were.
Oh well - sorry for the digression - sometimes I can't help myself. :>)
