Saluting cannon


Here’s a fine gift for the yottie who already has nearly everything. And it’s a Herreshoff design too. I think it’s nearly irresistable, though I no idea about the legality of such things in the UK.

Perhaps Hollowshore Cruising Club – my club – should get one? It’d be a blast at social occasions, or am I committing another etiquette faux pas here? (I’m not good at sailing etiquette, which seems to me to belong in roughly the same life category as shaving when a beard will do, cleaning your shoes when no-one will examine them or tidying your bedroom when it’s full of favourite things… )
