A Rubber Duck Unit of Length

Unit of Measure: A Standard Rubber Duck.
Length including duck bill: 6 inches (15 centimeters)
Height: 5 inches (12 centimeters)
Width: 3 inches (6 centimeters)

In the afternoon I will be posting photos of the Rubber Duck sitting  on a dead Finback Whale washed up on the rocky coast of Cape Ann. It will help to realize that RD is not a small duck. (The closeup fisheye effect of the iPhone distorts the view but RD really is 6 inches from stem to stern.)

And yes, RD has a red fiberglass cast on her right wing. She thanks everyone for all the get well cards. She only misses being able to give Homie a big hug.
