Spray (from Hoo-Yah)

Joshua Slocum was the first person to make a solo circumnavigation. Performed around the turn of the 19th Century, he was a sailing man in the wake of fossil fueled vessels.

On our way across, we stopped at the Houston Maritime Museum and I saw this model of "Spray" - the boat Slocum took on the 3 year voyage.
