......And other stuff.
Included here is a photo of the schooner "Spirit of Massachusetts", I took that in 2001 before I was really into photography with my first digital camera,an Olympus point & shoot. I remember that day well, it was during the annual Gloucester Schooner Festival. Instead of taking in the spectacle I was drift fishing when schooners started to appear. My boat was new back then and when I realized they were heading right at me I went to start the engine.....nothing! "Oh no" I thought as they got closer and closer. "Maybe if I pump the pressure bulb in the fuel line she'll start up" I said to myself. I frantically pumped away and still the engine wouldn't turn over! Thankfully I realized my mistake, while fishing I pulled away the clip for the kill switch. I clipped it back in and started it up. With about 100' to spare I motored away then clicked the camera.
