I thought this would be of interest to some of you. It is a little surprising that boats of this size and magnitude are still being made by hand out of wood in some parts of the World. These men are truly skilled boat builders.

They are probably do what their fathers did and their fathers did before and their fathers before them so it has become second nature to them.

It is still an outstanding task from any perspective!

I wonder what a one hundred and twenty footer would cost finished out to your own specs.I would love to know. Beautiful workmanship.W e really think we are wonderful with what we produce these days ,and in many ways we are in the computerized world we live in.It is only when you look back at all the old buildings many old churches etc built hundreds and hundreds of years ago ,with such a depth of precision and finishing , that we realize the old guys,n gals really were quite something to respect and behold,I am sometimes in awe of their accomplishments..I as an old sailboat owner myself (Fibreglass sorry) really would love to own one of these if I won the lottery and I was twenty years younger and of course much fitter.LOL Alistair
