"A tall, three-masted ship of a woman" Delightful!

"She was formidable -- a tall, three-masted ship of a woman who could, in person or on the page, slice cleanly through pettiness, cruelty, shoddiness, dissembling or wrongdoing. Anyone engaging her in a casual "hello" could expect to be conscripted into action."

Yes, this is old, but worth recognizing, don't you think?
