    Some years ago I went aboard her on the hard in Rhode Island. She’d hit a ledge off Camden and a few holes had been punched below the waterline. Thus she was ashore for repairs. Awesomely massive and sleek, even in that state of affairs.

      David, that wasn’t by chance 1997? We saw her moored outside of Camden in July of that year when we were on a Windjammer cruise. Word was that she had hit rocks and was coming in for repair.
