RE: Spray at speed

I don't know how*they decided on the name.* It's a popular name made famous by Joshua Slocum in 1895 with his solo circumnavigation of the world in his sailboat named*Spray.*

American Marine's Spray*was normally not run like this. I believe it was normally run at 6 or 7 knots. I also don't know what it had for an engine but it was built a couple of years before the startup of the Grand Banks line, so I don't know if it even had a Ford Lehman 120 in it. Spray was built in 1964 I believe. I don't know when the FL120 came on the scene.
