People always want to know how the Strange Bird logo and name came about.  A sail on a boat acts as a lifting surface or wing that causes airflow to drive the boat forward.  The keel of the boat in the water is also a lifting surface or wing that causes water flow that keeps the boat moving forward rather than sliding sideways.  Like a bird a sailboat has two wings to help it fly.  However unlike the bird the boat needs each of its wings to fly in a different medium.  It seems to me that can make for a very Strange Bird.
