My Favorite Yachts


Isn't it Romantic, my favorite song






My favorite yacht was Lawley .
In England. In 1851 he moved his
 family to Massachusetts.
 Family lore states that the
 steamship passed the yacht
 AMERICA on her famous
 Cup voyage and set the
 family on its road to
 subsequent Cup victories. 
After working for 
Donald McKay, George founded
 his own shipyard in Scituate, 
Massachusetts.
Shipbuilding--Massachusetts
-Shipbuilding
as an apprentice to Thomas &
wm. Forrest.
Yacht designers--Massachusetts

Lawley, George F. (1901-
George Lawley & Son
was a shipbuilding firm operating in Massachusetts from 1866 to 
1945. It began in Scituate,
Then moved to Boston
After founder George Lawley (1823–1915) retired in 1890,

Nice yachts! I saw your comment on my blog. The gold mop cypress should do fine where you are. As far as the grasses are concerned, some of them had a hard time coming back after last year's winter. They didn't start really filling out until well into June. Also, your grasses could have gotten damaged from snow piling up on them or salt from the roads, since they were near the driveway. Perhaps you can try them again, and a helpful tip is to not cut them back until late spring until you see them start sprouting. Keeping them intact over winter helps to protect the roots. Hope this helps!
