Only a year ago, I can’t believe I was so much in love with a maiden named Melonseed. She has the sweetest lines of any dinghy I’ve ever seen, but she’s not the cheapest to acquire, and in the UK, virtually impossible to find. If I lived in Lafayette, Louisiana, U.S.A., it may be a different story, for there I know of an enthusiastic owner of a Melonseed Skiff who has reminded me of his dinghy’s beauty by sending me a Christmas card featuring photos of her. The card also contains this little poem:
Roaring bow wave
Joy that lingers!
