  1. Thanks for posting this, I enjoyed it. It’s always a pleasure to see someone who is able to take pride in handicraft. Glad to know that there are still some parts of our society where that is a viable occupation.

  2. There are boat builders and boat sailors, and they are rarely the same people.  I tried to be the first, but it wasn’t me. 

    Wooden boats are beautiful works of art, but a hell of a lot of work to build and maintain.  Now I have a fiberglass boat with an aluminum mast – very little maintenance  and much more actual sailing.  But I have huge respect for the wooden boat people.
