Haul About
24" x 12" oil on canvas
$800.00 framed

"Haul about” is the term used by sailors as they change direction, and the wind pushes the sail to the opposite side of the boat. In many boats you have to duck as the boom swings over your head. The captain will say "Prepare to haul about”. The boat seen here is coming into Duck Trap Harbor in Northport, ME to turn around. I love the boat, and the harbor. I tried to capture the markings in the rocks on this sunny summer day.
