The "home port" is a nautical term for the port which serves as a vessel's base. And like so many of us who find ourselves drawn to different regions, the "home port" is not necessarily the original port of registry.
Salvaged in the lee of Boston's double leaf drawbridge, this boat-side comes from a 1950s Sparkman & Stephen's racing vessel. This piece from the side-hull has been sealed with 4 coats of polyurethane, hand painted in oil, and sanded to shine. Painting detail includes a nautical compass.
Dimensions: 70" wide x 12" tall.
