The boats are a gift of the water. They are born from the foam of the waves, created out of necessity, inventive human spirit and the elements. They are as alive as you are, as they are the projection of yourself on the water. You are no longer a spectator of the primordial watery system, but a participant in it.  After  completing your first wooden boat and absorbing your first experience in her, you may never want to feel the artificial touch of a plastic or fiber-glass built hull again.
