The graceful double-masted boat from Long Island that came to Oriental's Town Dock in early April, had proud old lines.  She was a schooner, with lots of finely-kept wood and time-burnished bronze.  Not to mention that carefully flaked foresail.

But "Deliverance" also featured signs of something even older - that old physics law:

Two objects can't occupy the same space. 

On her port bow, she sported a sizeable blemish.  The apparent scrape had scratched off some of the letters and that just made the boat's name stand out all the more.   Her hull was steel - which may have been fortunate during the hull scraping incident.

Was it a brush with a freighter? A particularly aggressive docking?
