Thank god free of debt.......

That's the symbolism of a golden (looking) mast tip here, a boat free of debt.

Well, if that silver metal thing is a whistle, I reckon that you are correct. However, that insulator on the stay suggests that the stay is an antenna, which would more likely be a mizzen. Windsock, either way But what about that light? Not a port side marker, way up there. All that merriman hardware sez gaff something, could go either way on that count, I reckon
