The wooden frame is approximately 3/4″ wide.

Please be sure to include a town or feature that you would like to be near the center of the chart. The default background, if you do not specify one, is the Boston harbor.

Good read, thanks. Always looking out for weird and wonderful stuff to read :)
Great to find your blog. Today I listened to a broadcast from 2 December on BBC Radio 3 of “Sea Fever,” one of my favourite poems. My Dutch dad was a graduate of the De Ruijter merchant marine academy in Vlissingen, Netherlands and sailed all over the world. After he died in 1994, we placed his ashes (along with my American mother’s) by a tree planted in the garden of the family’s summer house in Zeeland. You could look out onto the Veerse Meer from this spot. And at the service I read the Masefield poem in memory of my father. Cheers.
Thanks for visiting and sharing your special story about Masefield’s Sea-Fever.
