David and Susan Herron of Severna Park were having a delightful Labor Day on their 28-foot sailboat until the Chesapeake Bay Bridge got in the way. "Get down!" yelled Susan at her husband as she saw the mast crack against the bridge. The tall aluminum pillar and supporting wires toppled down across their boat, draping into the bay. "That's the last time I'm going boat camping!" she said and began packing their cellphones into plastic bags, worried their boat might capsize with the mast dragging behind.

One of our articles has quoted a gentleman saying "jerry-rigged," and of course we let that stand. Our job is to report what people do and say; making them look good is a flack's task.  But if you wish to be precise, you will observe a distinction between jury-rigged  and jerry-built , even though the two terms are frequently confused.  Any thing that is jury-rigged  is an improvised solution to a problem. It's originally a nautical expression, deriving, the Oxford English Dictionary says, from jury-mast , a temporary mast put up to replace one that has broken off or been swept away.

Douglas Moody Mast was an avid fisher, enjoying his favorite pastime throughout the United States, in Canada and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The Severna Park man was fishing alone on the Chesapeake Bay in his 23-foot, stern-drive cruiser Free Lunch on Wednesday when he died of a heart attack. He was 58. "Because of his heart problems, Douglas wasn't allowed to go fishing by himself," his wife, Donna Jean Welch-Mast, said yesterday. "But men, they never listen to you." Mrs. Welch-Mast said she and her husband bought their boat about three years ago and changed its name to Free Lunch a year later because "when we would go out fishing, we always thought that somebody would get a free lunch - either us if we caught something or [the fish]

INDIANAPOLIS -- Rick Mast turned his hat sideways, allowed his tongue to loll out of his mouth and then in a voice reminiscent of Gomer Pyle allowed, "I'm just an old Southern race car driver."The sophisticated Indianapolis Motor Speedway had never seen anything like this. The Good Old Boys revved their engines and stormed into the record books yesterday, with Mast, a rural Virginia farm boy, leading the charge.Mast set the sixth track record of the day for stock cars, and it stood up, as his Ford roared around this 2.5-mile super speedway at 172.414 mph to earn the No. 1 starting position for tomorrow's inaugural Brickyard 400.He was the 14th man on the track and he beat six-time Winston Cup champion Dale Earnhardt for the No. 1 starting position by .688 mph.Both Earnhardt and Mast "about cried" yesterday morning when they pulled the 13th and 14th qualifying positions.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Lawyers for Italy's Prada America's Cup team are gathering evidence for a possible challenge over the legality of the carbon-fiber racing masts used by rival AmericaOne. Prada believes AmericaOne may have violated Article 17 of the America's Cup protocol, which specifically forbids "shared knowledge." The suggestion is that three American syndicates, AmericaOne, Stars and Stripes and Young America, which all had their masts built by the same company in Nevada, may have benefited by sharing various design concepts.

This is the story of a historic wooden sailing boat and a majestic tree that was growing tall before the American Revolution. It's also about anenvironmentalist whose decisions will affect the fate of both.It began last summer when a worker on the oyster skipjackStanley Norman called Don Baugh out of a meeting in Annapolis. For the education director of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the worker had the worst sort of news:Rot had eaten deep into the Stanley's huge old pine mast.The skipjack, which dredged the bay from 1902 until its captain sold it in 1989, was among the fewer than two dozen survivors in North America's last fleet of working sailcraft.

At a show known nationally for exhibiting the latest, fastest and most luxurious sailboats hitting the market, a vessel that can skim the surface on two toothpick-like, fiberglass extensions may sound more fitting for a sci-fi movie. The International Moth, a modified version of the popular Australian boat, will make its American debut at the 37th annual U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis. The show will run from Thursday to Oct. 9 in Annapolis Harbor, and the 35th annual U.S. Powerboat Show follows: Oct. 12 to 15. Australian Rohan Veal, a champion Moth sailor, will promote the boat.

When you look at the Chesapeake Bay on a warm summer day, chances are you will see thousands of tiny white triangles powering sailboats through the waves. Most don't think twice about those triangles - where they came from or how they were designed. But sails on a boat can be as complex as wings on an airplane. The shape of the sail is nuanced, and tiny changes can radically alter the way wind propels the craft. And, although computer-assisted designs have made the industry far more technology-dependent than in the past, the sails are still made (or at least finished)

WASHINGTON -- A female midshipman tearfully described yesterday sexually explicit remarks made by a Naval Academy professor on a training cruise last summer during the first day of his court-martial on charges of sexual harassment. The midshipman, junior Samantha Foxton, paused when she was asked what Lt. Bryan Black said to her and at least one other midshipman Aug. 9. Tears welled up in her eyes. She then testified that Black made a reference to male arousal to describe his admiration for battleships, and asked if they had a similar effect on her, referring to her breasts.

Jerry's Kids are doing without. Same goes for Baltimore police and firefighters. Hurricane Katrina victims have tugged so hard on America's heartstrings that fundraisers for other causes are suddenly shifting focus to benefit storm survivors. So when the group that runs the Pride of Baltimore II announced a "Raise the Rig" campaign for the ship after both masts collapsed this week, the timing was very awkward. "It isn't ideal, is it?" said Carol L. Hirschburg, a board member for Pride of Baltimore Inc., a nonprofit organization that operates the state-owned vessel.

Even when your boat sustains a direct hit by lightning, it's unlikely anybody on board will get hurt, according to research done by Chuck Fort, an associate editor at a newsletter put out by BoatU.S. Marine Insurance. After reviewing 998 lightning-related claims submitted to the insurance company in the past five years, Fort found that nobody had died and only "a handful" of people had been seriously hurt when lightning damaged their boats. "The people who are injured are in open boats - runabouts and bass boats," Fort said.
