Ghosts. Fog gives us impressions of ghosts. Mariners love ghost stories; fascinating yarns spun linked to history.
And a yarn spun of history is what we see in foggy Newport Harbor. A classic pulling boat rowed among the moored boats. This represents the 18th and 19th centuries, designed for the Age of Sail.
Among the moored boats is a Columbia 26 MK2. Stout and hardy. Thick, heavy fiberglass built vessels of the mid-20th century. Joining it is a sportsfisherman reminiscent of Rhode Island's biggest fishing tournaments.
Finally, in the background, there are two picnic boats in the shadows. These are also known as lobster yachts. These vessels of leisure belie the working history from which the design descended.
Yes, rowing through the fog in Newport Harbor is a trip through history. The Flying Dutchman itself may come to visit in these heavy, settled mists.
