She looks good under full sail Walter. Reminds me of the lyrics from Southern Cross by Crosby, Stills & Nash.

Got out of town on a boat
Goin' to Southern islands.
Sailing a reach
Before a followin' sea.
She was makin' for the trades
On the outside,
And the downhill run
To Papeete.
Off the wind on this heading
Lie the Marquesas.
We got eighty feet of the waterline.
Nicely making way.

Terrific modern-day schooner image, Walter!!

It is a fine ship. It makes one think of the history of the seas, of explorations, of new worlds. A fantastic photo. VV
