Primer time

I saw a boat going up the Ohio River the other day, and by the time I had caught up with it, it was about to go out of sight, so I to get a quick photo.

Yes, that's the O. Nelson Jones, and it looks like a new coat of primer has been applied to the pilothouse. It got me to wishing that boats could use a dark blue primer. In this case, the O. Nelson Jones would have looked like one of the old M/G boats, except that the nameboard is too legible from a distance.
