EP going boaty

First the Boathouse on Lake Echo Park was restored. Then the paddle boats are saved. Then the restaurant 15 turns into the Allston Yacht Club -- never mind that it's three blocks away from the mighty Lake Echo Park. Then Martin (aka Martin Cox, Chicken Corner's waterfowl correspondent) gets a title. The Steam Ship Historical Society of America has named this EP boho/citizen Local Commodore of the year for 2009. The title is in recognition of Martin's blog-keeping: For a decade the photographer has (Ocean liner history and global shipping news). The site has well over a million views. Congratulations, Martin!
