Come Sail Away
Here's a yacht you can afford. Display the Switchables stained glass Sailboat nightlight cover in your sailboat cabin, or just dream of the boat that you'll own someday.
This is not a self-contained night light. Switchables stained glass night light covers are designed to be used with the Switchables Nightlight Fixture (sold separately). Switchables are "switchable" because you can easily swap any one of our covers onto the same simple fixture. You can also use your Switchables cover as a suncatcher, a Christmas ornament, or with any other kind of light source. To display your Switchables cover in a window, add the optional suction cup. Switchables make gift-giving easy: Start your recipient out with a fixture and one or two covers, then buy him or her new covers on future gift-giving occasions.
Are you curious...?
Some of the earliest known boats in the ancient world used wind power for at least part of their propulsion. Today sailboats are mostly recreational. They're divided into different types according to their hull design (monohull, catamaran, or trimaran), their keel type, their purpose, and the number and arrangement of their masts and sails. Our Switchables cover is a stylized portrayal of the three-masted schooner. When a shipwright in Gloucester, Massachusetts, launched a ship looking something like this in 1713, a spectator said admiringly "Oh, how she scoons!" (Scoon was an Americanized version of the Scots word scon, meaning "to skip along the surface of the water"). Its maker replied, "A scooner let her be," and a new category of sailing vessel was born. Or so the story goes. The "h" was added to "scooner" later on just to screw people up.
