Mystic, to quote Soundbounder, is “Disneyland for [proud] water rats” and  thrills even the dogs, at least water dogs.  Can you figure out what’s happening here?

Kingston II was launched in 1937 after being assembled by apprentice welders at Electric Boat.

 Amazon (an 1885 screw schooner) graces Mystic with her beauty until her lightning-charred electronics are repaired.  Just beyond her with the wildly raked masts is Amistad, also in for repairs.Amazon (83′ waterline x 15′ beam) embodies  long and lean.

Breck Marshall, a Crosby catboat, sails like a dream. 

Mina is a sweet “launchetta” from exactly a century ago.

Growler leaves early on Columbus Day. 

Be-puddinged garvey with dory and high-and-dry whaleship  Morgan.

And the dog question . . . John Paul (launched 1967, ex-Katrina, Nickie B, and U. T. 1) , moored for part of weekend, had a blueclaw on a piece of fendering designed to allow assisting of submarine.  Dog saw crab and became so curious it nearly tried walking on water.
