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.
This wood-hulled replica of a 1790-era New England schooner was built in 2000. 32' and an 8' beam. "Caledonian." Besides being used for fishing, schooners like this one transported everything up and down the East coast. Yes, she is for sale, too.
Re those handsome New England schooners and NE regional/ water enthusiasts: what if one were to be moving back to Texas soon- do you have any "vintage vessel" recommendations for the southern Gulf? Might they be more Spanish?
