Happy birthday via a few sailboats


This post is in honor of @clickeasy and his 67th birthday. (In all actuality I have been researching historical photos of boats for an upcoming, and sure to be fascinating, blog post and figured I could get some mileage with a good friend as well as publish the fruits of my endless research. Win win for everyone. @MatthewLDonald don’t expect anything like this on your birthday).
