The Elves and the Boatbuilder

You know for years and years, like many other boat builders, every so often I’ve misplaced a tool, spent ages looking for it only to find it in the first place I looked. If you’re tired or in a rush this can quickly turn from perplexing to Rumplestilskin type apoplexy.
Well I think I discovered the cause.

I walked up to visit my neighbour earlier for a Christmas drink. While strolling home full of the spirit of Christmas I noticed the lights on in my workshop. I thought I or my wife had left the lights on. But I could hear hammering! So peeking in the window I was able to snap the attached photo. I don’t know what it is but it was using my hammer. Being superstitious I decided on not disturbing this creature and I’m just hoping it put my hammer back on the shelf.

If you’d like to have your own elf built boat in time for next Christmas why not give Tiernan Roe a call +353 28 38973 He might know someone who can make it happen.
