Fishing Boat

This boat is waiting out the winter while the fisherman works on the traps in behind the shed.  The boat's unusual name comes from the the first two letters of the names of four members of the family.

Il est au repos.
Mary MacADNski: He will be working on it soon.
I love that idea for the name!
Mary MacADNski: It makes the name unique which is hard when registering boats.
Clever approach to a name, Mary. I like that.
Mary MacADNski: It is an unusual name and unique as well.

What a great way to make a name. I can tell that the owner takes good care of the boat. I like the picture.
Mary MacADNski: The boat has to be readied for the water. The blue bottom is painted right before putting the boat in the water.

Original name then, Mary. It looks in good condition
Mary MacADNski: An original name for a boat is wonderful as boats cannot be named the same unless numbers are added to the names.

All waiting to go
Mary MacADNski: The bottom will be repainted and the boat cleaned before long on the warm days approaching.
I sense that boats require a lot of maintenance Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Oh yes. This will be spic and span with a newly painted bottom before entering the water. I expect he is waiting for warmer weather before unrolling the hose for the season.
I could call a boat Hebi Anka
Mary MacADNski: I suggested my father-in-law call his sailboat Jerico as it referenced all his grandchildren's names at the time. Of course he did not like the Biblical story to which the name refers.

She has fine curves, Mary!
Mary MacADNski: very typical of our molded fiberglass boats.

Oh, you know the owners of this fine boat.
Mary MacADNski: Yes, ironically I was looking at a 7th grade class photo of the owner today.

It looks very well cared for.
Mary MacADNski: It will look ship shape in a few weeks.
presumably when they are out of the ater in the winter the owners take the opportunity to clean up and surface the hull.
Mary MacADNski: That will be done in the next 6 weeks when the weather is warmer.

Judging by the snow ion the ground, it's not really boating weather in any case. A chance to work on its hull.
Mary MacADNski: Traps and gear have been worked at inside the shed but soon the weather will cooperate for outdoor work on the hull.

Ready to rumble, there on her stilts.
Mary MacADNski: She has the spring work to be done before launching and her season.
Soon to be plowing water...
Mary MacADNski: Another six weeks or so.
