A Skiff Wind blows over the water-An account of my winter project to build my first wooden boat, a 13' plywood QT Skiff designed by Jim Michalak. Now that that boat has been launched and is in use, this blog will now also document all of my other boat building and general "MESSING ABOUT IN BOATS"
This is why I like a rowing boat over a paddle boat, the ability to do neither and just relax. Photo by J. Felty.
Now she sits in the boat barn, collecting dust, and the nests of furry little four footed critters. I need to give her a good going over and set her up for winter storage. Who am I kidding, just storage. Back when I had a motor vehicle that was appropriate I could take the boat down and enjoy this kind of activity and non activity, but alas, no more. Maybe again someday. For now it is nice to visit my memories of time just messing about in boats.
