the owners of the yacht that used to moor here traveled through the gulf for years and collected hard hats from rigs, driftwood, ring buoys, and nailed it all to the boatshed walls. the wife painted these signs and hung them everywhere in the shed because they lived in the yacht and had fixed up the shed as a home too. they were fun, interesting people and my kids all have fond memories of the times they shared with them. now the shed is a skeleton but the signs and other collections still remain as a reminder of the two "sailors" we once knew. to see some of the other signs visit my flickr page.
