We also own a second 12M, Defender, a yacht I helped make in 1982, for Tom Blackaller and Gary Jobson. The Owner found her in Florida, languishing, abandoned. It was what got him interested in 12 Metres in the first place. She is a 1983 boat, so it is in the same class as Victory, Modern, no wings. He eventually bought it and brought it home to Newport to build the class. We refurbished Defender, curing some of her inherent problems. She still needs a suit of sails, running rigging and some love, then it will be set to go.

The lyrics offer a perspective on the American experience; there are references to struggle, weariness, hard work, confusion, and homesickness. The bridge conveys a dream of death and of the Statue of Liberty "sailing away to sea". The song ends with an assertion that "you can't be forever blessed" before the lyrics return to the idea of work, tiredness, and resignation.
