Wooden boats are not about nostalgia or romance, they are not about craft, design and history or tradition. And they are not about fair winds and favoring tides, nor tropical adventures, nor a life of blue water cruising. After all is said and done; all of the dust swept up and the scraps of timber and crud trashed and burned, and all of the bills tallied-
wooden boats are about buying sandpaper. Lots and lots of it. The whole mirage of the salty life of a wooden boat owner is really just a fabrication of the abrasive industry; a cruel sham foisted upon delusional people who cant keep count of all of those little $2 squares of rough paper. " That mirror shine"..."Smoothe as smoothe can be"... See...it's all a hoax.

Mirror shine? What mirror shine? Obviously you havent seen my Mac!
She gets a sand over and a coat of paint every 2 years and a patch in between. She's a work boat, working to keep me happy, the hardware would go broke waiting for me!
