    Follow along with this. Most yachts and boats are named after the female persuasion.
    But here we found SWEET WILLIAM, so maybe this signifies a personal preference of sorts. And it's on a Johnson, so go figure.

    Afternoon lighting can make the subject pop out of the photo, like with this Feadship SWEET PEA.

    The green hull of thios 74-foot Viking is hard to miss. It kind of glows.

    I have also heard that it is the first two letters in the names of the owners family that could be arranged for that phrase.

    Excellent pictures! Thanks you guys for sharing with the rest of us.

    CaptTom,

    Thanks. What great pornography to start the day with. Where there no sailing ladies to go with the stinkpots at Fort Lauderdale or is your do you lean the power way?

    I would have loved to sea what was on the sailing pontoons!

    You might favor the Annapolis show, but alas it's come and gone for this year. With good shots like these maybe Tom can do some roving. Sponsors?:D Sorry I missed you Tom. Even carried my YF shirt. Another of those quick in and outs. Never came south of Boynton. Thanks for the great shots and hard work. Almost like being there, but without the heat.

    Good to know when I get across to the US to aim for Annapolis not Lauderdale.
    Meanwhile we can keep looking at CaptToms images. Superb. Thanks
