I have always been one to be seduced by the water and just about anything else that is in the water, on the water or near the water. I am especially a lover of classic wooden boats. I simply cannot resist their charm and beauty and have so much respect for the owners of these beauties who I know go to great lengths to restore and maintain these treasures. They certainly have a sense of pride that seems unique to this particular boat owner and rightfully so.
I love to see the glow of the wood as these boats glide elegantly across the water and cannot help but to think of and imagine the history behind each one of them. I fully understand and totally agree when I hear other admirer's proclaim of the wooden boat: "she has a soul" - I get it.
