One possible future on the water

by Vermont Rice

Maybe the future at the water’s edge somewhere in the Champlain valley or on the Hudson could look like this.  Here’s the scene:  A T40x10 unloads cargo with the sprit crane at the dockside.  Upper left is a T64x16 schooner (60 tons or so burthen), right is a T40x12 brig, and to the far right in the distance is a Thames-rigged T40x12.
