« Part 2: Ghost Ship, (why I've been away from the shop) Part 3 of For the Sailors and Boat Lovers series Part 4: Time For an Adventure »

I’ve been almost invisible here for a couple of weeks but I have an excuse. There hasn’t been much woodworking going on in the shop. (Click photo for video)

I’ve posted more thrilling rides in the past but there are moments like this one that are just as amazing. I am so lucky to have this at my doorstep.

Thanks for looking

Lovely bowsprit shot over the FriendShip. I see a marquetry piece of this one.
Even a marqueteur deserves a little down time. LOL

Amen to that Paul. It’s wonderful having the time to do the things we love. Nice video with no motors whirring away.

Nothing more relaxing and soothing than listening to the sound of water on the hull. Awesome…
