flying boats

Aside from the anxiety of
seeing boats swinging around in the wind,
there was the nervous anticipation of seeing "Claire's"
keel for the first time. I had seen only profile drawings-
as no lines drawings had come to light .
I was surprised how closely the the keel's proportions
follow the proportions of those of her
wooden predecessors.
