“Of life’s two chief prizes, beauty and truth, I found the first in a loving heart and the second in a laborer’s hand.”– Khalil Gibran
How we work
A wooden sailing boat is perhaps the most glorious instrument the human hand can build. The job of the boatbuilder is to breathe a new life into the supple wood and sturdy metal, rope and sail. Like skin, bone and sinews, these elements merge, with craft, to form a creature that both flies and swims, hums with its own music, provides shelter and warmth, always opening new horizons.
Fastenings are of copper and bronze throughout to survive the salt. We insist on a high quality finish to protect the wood.
