I got this photo of the skin on frame canoe I built last October last week and it pretty much sums what’s great about lightweight wooden boats. If you haven’t already heard Ireland is experiencing one of its wettest summers in many years. What? How could it be any wetter in Europe’s wettest country? Well it has been.
Anyway this photo lifted my spirits as I’m glad to see that at least some people are getting the chance to spend time on the water enjoying their wooden boats and their friends company and of course gratitude for opening up a whole new world of fun and adventure.
Hopefully if the weather co-operates I’ll get out sailing, for only the third time this year in my own boat, at the weekend. I feel like I’m going through cold turkey and I really need a fix of some good sailing.
So if you call +353 (0)28 8973 looking to talk to me about having your own boat built and there’s no answer, you can be pretty certain I’ve taken to the boat come hell or high water.
