Q: what harbor were you in when you wrote A Boat Without Sails?
A: I was on the east side of Tampa Bay, at the Floridays event. I was chatting with a buddy and he mentioned some sailboats he'd seen on the far side of the harbor, that looked perfectly sound but were all stripped of their rigging and lying fallow. He said it was maybe the saddest thing he'd ever seen, and I thought about and a couple days later, the song came into form.
