Bowspirt Figurehead by kaspired Bowspirt Figurehead by kaspired
Just a silly little bit.

But it can get much sillier really easily. Away back when, in the days of wooden sailing ships, most of the sailors were illiterate and they needed a way to identify other ships. So they used the figures on the bowsprit to do the job.

Which leads to the question: What ships' name does this suggest?

I could see the captain shouting "Follow that hair!"... Or maybe her hair always points north...

At least it's a very clean ship...decks all swept and stuff. A mess is not allowed. Thank God it wasn't a Patty/Selma ship - smoke billowing out the back as it sails along...
