Another sort of milestone reached I guess. I’ve started bonding together the large section of backbone. Suddenly I have moved from making separate pieces to making a boat. I took things really slowly a) because I wanted everything to be right and b) because I was scared! For the first time I feel like I have really started creating something special, turning pieces of wood into a thing of beauty. OK so I’ve shared a bottle of wine with someone special tonight and I’m feeling a bit philosophical but hey this boat building thing is supposed to be a bit deeper than DIY isn’t it. I will make amends tomorrow with a more technical blog and some photos.
