Thread Name: Help: Mary Ellen Carter? What kind of boat?
Subject: Mary Ellen Carter? What kind of boat?
I just finished reading "Unfinished Conversation" A biography od Stan Rogers. Apparantly she was supposed to have been a freighter. There is a piece from an unfinished radio play editorializing about and "industry" of burning freighters for insurance.

Of course, even though Stan may have been thinking of a freighter, we of course are free to imagine any type of boat we want.

BTW, I just bought 10 CDs, the book, the One warm Line Video, and the songbook from Fogerty's Cove Records. If you are interested check out www.stanrogers.net.
