A Wooden Boat Publication post card

picture taken by William Thuss

This postcard was saved by myself for the past twenty years,I assume it was included in the Wooden Boat Magazines we buy from time to time? The balance of the picture is perfect,with the colour of the water fading into a slightly lighter blue sky in such a way that its hardly noticable,the picture is almost still life but the inclusion of the man walking up the bridge and the yellow waterproofs he is wearing,adds balance to the two wooden boat craft,the photographer,William Thuss is highly commended!

The featured boats are Syrinx,a Lyle Hess cutter and Jesse,a Joel White/Herreshoff Catspaw dinghy in the morning calm at Woodenboat,Naskeag Point,Maine,USA.

My thanks to Woodenboat Publications Inc.1989.
