The coun- try at the back of Brenzett is low and flat, but the bay is fairly well sheltered from the seas, and occa- sionally a big ship, windbound or through stress of weather, makes use of the anchoring ground a mile and a half due north from you as you stand at the back door of the "Ship Inn" in Brenzett.
But to render this acuteness at all successful in the end, the wind and the sea must be the whaleman's allies; for of what present avail to the becalmed or windbound mariner is the skill that assures him he is exactly ninety-three leagues and a quarter from his port?

Windbound Co.'s use of a PC-based CNC router has brought new possibilities to its work with Dupont Corian solid surface material and expanded business opportunities significantly, said company president Mike Nolan.
Now, in addition to cutting and installing Corian countertops and backsplashes using traditional methods, Windbound can bring customers' design ideas into its PC-controlled cutting system to create custom inlays on the surface.
Windbound, a New Mexico furniture company, got started making solid surface inlays when owners of some of the more expensive homes in Albuquerque and Santa Fe area asked for countertops with inlaid designs.
The experience gained from cutting inlay designs in countertops and backsplashes led Windbound into a new business: producing custom plaques in Corian solid surface.
Windbound can cut inlay designs directly into the solid surface, so a traditional metal plate is not needed unless the customer requests it.
The key to this custom work is Windbound's ability to take any design, load it into the PC and use it to drive the router.
Although originally designed for metalworking, Mastercare is well-suited for jobs such as Windbound's Corian inlays because of its ability to generate complex contours with little programming effort, Nolan said.
