Summertime and the living is easy, they say.  For some.  Enjoying an easy time on the water , that’s the life for some people.  . . .    Of course, rougher and tougher is better for people like Erik Aanderaa and adventures like this.      But on this enchanted late spring morning, a wave of yachts entered the harbor, here like  Second Wind, a Bayfield cutter ketch, and Tugnacious.

Tugnacious?  Remember I told you there were several boats by that name.  This Tugnacious appears to be an American Tug pilothouse trawler.

A Dutch yacht sailed in, judging by the flag.  It had a French name, I recall starting  with S, but I can’t remember it.

As crude VLCC (?) Atina left port–more photos of that later, Moonstruck, a Catalina 470, arrived.

I don’t know the manufacturer of all of these yachts, but I’d guess Pegasus, below, is a Fisher 37 pilothouse sloop.  I love the lines.

Jilleroo had such an unusual name for a US yacht that I looked it up, and I found the brand and sale price here.

All the gear on Autumn Borne led me to suspect she’s been sailing a while, and sure enough, if I read this right, she’s a Buffalo boat that’s been in salt water a while.

Done Diggin’ is a power cat from very near my old stomping  . .  . and  paddling grounds on the PowWow River.  They appear to be loopers who also keep a blog diary.

Ketch Bella Vita . . .  I’ve not found much, but it appears to be a sweet center-cockpit 45- to 50′ cruising boat with lots of room below.

And this . . .  I’m just speechless, for this 70′ to 85′ yacht to be roaring past a small fishing boat.  It’s no wonder their name is obscured.

All photos, WVD, who has his own unrequited summer boat lusts.. . .  for now.

Unrelated:  Remains of a very special PT boat were discovered in the Harlem River in recent days.  Thx to Justin Zizes for passing that tidbit along.
