Handsome

While I know there are more than one in here,there are some handsome rakes in this photo. Maybe add it to the Handsome Rakes tags?

Hammer and Plug

I'd have to guess there is a "Crew" boat nearby. The plug is known as a "Bung". The hammer is used to securely place the "Bung" into the "Bunghole" in the bilge of the boat, lest they sink and join Davey Jones Locker.

Uh ... no comment?

Posted a day already and no one wants to touch this one with a 10 foot oar. (But I am wondering what the wooden mallet is for.)
