    Very interesting Bill.
    It is an entirely new take on the Dazzle camo I must admit. Watch out for my new look Constitution!

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    After that, maybe I will settle for a Stealth Constitution.

    The retired fireboat painted in "dazzle" design previously discussed on this thread was briefly docked across the river from me this morning. It is sailing up and down the Hudson giving rides on the boat. This boat (before it was painted this way) was called out of retirement to fight the massive fires in lower Manhattan on September 11, 2001. When the twin towers of the World Trade Center collapsed they crushed all the water lines in the area seriously debilitating the fire fighters (many surrounding buildings were damaged as well) thus necessitating calling this boat back into service. Today marks the 17th anniversary of that day when 3,000 Americans were murdered. Pretty much every village in the Hudson Valley on the commuter rail line into New York City had to tow cars from their train stations of people who went to work that morning and never returned.
