The Plan

  1. I'm imagining that the passengers are too polite to point out that it's usual to proceed pointy-end first.

  2. Did he pull the dinghy out of the water and up onto the dock to load it? I've never seen that before. Pretty tight quarters for three sailors and their kits. I guess it's lucky they don't have labs.

  4. I was waiting for someone to fall in, like it was going to be a Monty Python sketch!

  6. Until he sold his sailboat my oldest friend and I would go off on a "boy's cruise" pretty much each summer for a few days. One year he somehow left the oarlocks for his Puffin dinghy (like that one) at home. The dinghy had been on a rack ashore and was towed out by the launch when we were dropped off aboard. It wasn't until the next night that we realized we didn't have them. We spent the subsequent days paddling the dinghy around islets and to landings canoe-style, struggling to keep from spinning in circles. One observer from ashore commented that we ought to learn how to row. I had to laugh to myself, having rowed in the H-Y Race in my teens, but we deserved it!

  7. Obit for a “man in full” who probably took part in similar scenes.http://obituaries.pressherald.com/obituaries/mainetoday-pressherald/obituary.aspx?page=lifestory&pid=189419566 SWNE reflects Mr. Parker’s ethos, I think.
