I was just thinking, "THAT's what a harbor full of sailboats should look like!"

We're looking SW from the Neck toward Devereux Beach?

Where I learned to sail.
About 25 years later...

What's that little gaff lapstrake-ish looking sloop just past number 3?

Yep. But not panning far enough to the right to include Abbot Hall tower. Probably taken from the Eastern Yacht Club.

I was born up the harbor a ways about a block from the water. My home was down harbor, about two blocks in. Because of that early environmental influence I have been relegated to an entire life dedicated to small, centerboard, wood craft sailing. What a ghetto.

Marblehead, Salem, Swampscot, and Lynn were my early stomping grounds. I regularly rode my bicycle to all those places, until I could drive, then everything changed...

There was a line up of wicker rockers along that porch looking out over the harbor.

It still looks like that in some places;

Those BPL photos are great; I've been on them for a couple of days trying to find pics of old one designs. But, even as a traditional boat lover, the fact that so many clubs around there still seem to just sail old designs seems a little odd. Old boats are great, but so are new ones, and a mixture is surely healthier than a monoculture.

looks like a "townie" I think your seeing the mast crossing the boat behind, there are several more out among the bigger boats, still raced at Marblehead.

With a fleet like that it is a wonder it took 50 years to kill all the fish.
