I have an affinity for old wooden boats. There is a greater affinity for boats named "Misty". In our case, it was an old wooden 18' boat built by Sturdee in Tiverton, Rhode Island. We kept the boat at Mr. Frederick's little marina on Warwick Neck. My father obtained it from an old friend, Mr. Hawkins, who sold boats for a living.
"Misty" is such a fitting name for the Rhode Island area. It is a condition that we often face. Sometimes it comes in a form of rain that will soak one as if thrown over the side and into the drink. Other times it comes from the fog. Here we see fog obscuring a view of Great Island.
There is so much to ponder as we see boats settled as these in the fog. The poet Thomas Hood would say that we were standing in silence, listening to silence in the fog. With the water stilled, and the mist and fog about us, it gives the opportunity to reminisce. And with all the boats in port, we have time to think about appropriately named wooden boats.
