This was originally commissioned as the cover of a catalog...a guide to marinas, shops, chandleries, and boat builders in Oceania and Southeast Asia. The publisher ran into money troubles and refused to pay on delivery, so this art was ultimately never used.
Hey, publishers! "No payment now = no art now. Don't even ask about buy-now-pay-later. Artists should never be asked to give big companies an interest-free, no-collateral loan, and that's what buy-now-pay-later is."
