As I promised you here is a picture of my baby covered in her winter coat. To be more explicit, this boat is often referred to as a Classic Plastic; O’Day 27 foot sailboat. Like most vintage boats or humans, myself included, after a long and sometimes trying life she has bruises and scars, but I love her nevertheless. As soon as the weather warms, I will get busy repainting her and fixing the myriad of problems that exist in an old boat. As Shakespeare stated, she “has suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune”.
I’d like to propose a contest. I bought her last year from an old gent in Harbor Beach, Michigan and I want to change the name of this elegant gal. What I propose is a contest for my devoted readers. Whoever comes up with the winning name will get a signed copy of a novel I hope to publish this year. I get to choose the winner.
So, put on your thinking caps and give me your best shot at a name. I promise to be fair in my selection and will announce the winner by April 15th.
