AT THE BOAT SHOW
At the boat show I happened to be
Glass boats all look strange to me.
No character there
same old atmosphere
I would be unhappy to use one at sea.
Aluminium boats, huge stocks on display
corrosion prone I always say.
They're made in great haste
no paint, now that's bad taste,
new brand names appear each day.
Where are the real boats we knew?
I have sailed them and, crewed on a. few.
No Stainless or Chrome,
you could build one at home,
and use them right out in the blue.
I almost gave up looking for good
when I found a beautiful boat built of wood.
It was hand crafted and rare,
and built with great care.
It stood out from the rest, as it should.
Roy W. Bliss.
