    I'll be watching.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    I hope they can do it. With the cost and starting a family. Great video.

    Gotta say I need a nap after getting tired just watching the video. That said, they're 40 years younger than I & I hope they pull it off. Methinks all that Epiphanes is going to be going on a lot of wood that's not currently on the boat.

    Those Alden schooners sure are pretty boats.

    Right here in Cambridge, they steadily plug away almost every day. I will try to snap a picture or two tomorrow.

    Looks like it needs a new deck, likely framing and a lot of planks just for starters.

    Doesn’t leave much, hope they have a hot line to Leo. Spose at least the engine goes. I was thinking they bought all that paint a wee bit early.
