I use to want

everything to be ship shape and perfectly coated- with no runs or sags. Mirror gloss shine. a locker filled with good food. a chain locker without rust. a night watch with out the self steering going mad. perfect un salted pillows. lockers that would open with out items pitching across the soul. But then I realized all thats impossible when you use your boat. Sail night and day for months.  looking at some pictures the other night of  classic old boats we sail against. Our Tiger does get places even if we look a bit ratty. I would not trade our travels for the perfect looking boat!

Sailing thru water. restoring and refinishing wooden boats and homes. Handcrafting a collection of last a lifetime- inheritable objects. ( worldsendny) Inspiration comes from the places we sail, the people we meet and the history of long ago.
