My title refers not to my physiognomy, though it could so serve, but to the description of one of these boats, about which the following is also said:
"The bow bulged like a swan's breast, the stem rising high, then crooking forward to support an iron lantern. The doors were carved from slabs of a mottled black-green wood. The windows were many sectioned, paned with squares of mica that were stained rose, blue, pale green and violet. The bow was given to service facilities and quarters for the slaves; amidships were a pair of sleeping cabins, a dining saloon and a parlor saloon, opening upon an observation deck at the stern."
You can imagine what such a boat would cost when new, or can you? What are your favorite Vancean watercraft?
