Michael and I have been sailing friends for years. Once we were coming across the bar at Cortez, Florida in his Marsh Hen and we jibed, the boom caught on the stay and we came within feet of the restaurant docks at the Star Fish Co. Can still see those wide eyes with their mouths full of fish sandwiches.
Although he no longer has the Marsh Hen he brought his recently-built coracle to St. Michaels. It was a hit. The small 'basket' boat moved in and out of the small craft as he propelled her by pulling in water in a modified sculling motion. You can find more notes and pictures here.
