    I've had some delightful visits to Oxford. A tonger there named String Bean comes to mind especially.

    that is a hard life for both waterman and his craft, I am amazed how neat and clean they keep their boats. Around here they beat their boats to death until they all but sink and then get another one.

    The buyboat is Dudley, formerly from Deltaville, now Cambridge. Foreground is Adventurer, 1926 Alden Malabar VI.

    Loverly boats, Steve.
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Here is another of Iva W, 1929, originally Deltaville again, having some plank work done. You can google her back story.

    Love those buy boats. I use to see a real beauty in the mouth of the York on a regular basis.

    Perhaps with the cavernous holds laden with her bounty she wasn't tippy? I am told that she is very beautiful topsides, maybe a sunken cost dilemma with removing the top story? I do not know if it is original

    Well, not all of them...

    This is Virginia W, 1904, neglected and barely afloat. A smaller skipjack, reportedly an excellent sailer, a good candidate for a historical reconstruction if you have deep pockets.

    Here is a nice little crab skiff. Strip planned, with a flat bottom, I am quite sure. A bit of a clutter, but it is sort of a well organized working man's clutter.

    One more for this evening, something a bit different. If you are paying attention upstairs, you will know what this tug is doing. Tomorrow, I will try to get up a few more pix of the recent activities here in Cambridge.
