    Default I am the luckiest man...

    While at the show in Mystic and waiting for folks in front of the Oyster House
    for a forum folks get together, my wife wandered into the bookseller located
    inside. She knew I had loved the book, The Boy,Me, and the Cat, and she
    found a hardcover edition for a very reasonable price. This edition is illustrated with
    photos and hand drawn sketches made along the journey as well as copies of
    letters to and from the author, Henry Plummer. Usually, as soon I read a book, I give
    it away to a friend who shows an interest. Not gonna happen this time. This is a
    treasure!

    Sorry my pics are not so good.

    and one more. this one is really not good, it is of Henry rebuilding the
    motor for the launch they towed behind MASCOT.
    There are lots of other sketches and pics as well.

    Good find! You always come home from the show with something interesting. The antique helm you found there a couple of years ago for my fantail launch is what makes it look "authentic". Thanks again!
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    Very welcome, Rich. That wheel was a find. We went to the same marine salvage/consignment shop this time, but no treasures until we got to the show.
