Calling all Seadogs !

Calling all Seadogs !

According to Wiktionary:

A landlubber is a nautical, pejorative for someone unfamiliar with the sea or seamanship, especially a novice seaman.

That would be me.

The other day Brian sent me the following note in connection with a post I had made entitled Bluenose II … Back to Sea again! back on July 15, 2015.

“That last picture is not the Bluenose. The Bluenose is a 2 masted schooner the last picture clearly has 3 masts. Just thought you should know.”

Below is the offending image which I initially posted as Bluenose II.

Tweren’t tho.

Notice the 3 masts?
I didn’t.

The image below is the original 2 masted Bluenose.

I hope you can see how I could get fooled!!?? said the landlubber.
So I replaced the wrong Bluenose II image with this one (below)
which claims to be the original Bluenose II
Nice.

Wiktionary says: A Seadog is a sailor accustomed to the sea.

Thanks Brian!

You must be an old seadog. I woulda bet 40 farthings
and a gold Bluenose coin on my original image.
But you spotted it.
