Four Seasons As Fore-And-Afters

Fore-and-afters were two-masted ships, ketch rigged to enhance their weatherliness. The names, which are the names of real ships, combine a touching tribute to the people they honour and the attributes of the seasons their names evoke:

The Kathleen May
The Minnie Flossie
The Samuel Moss
The William Ashburner
