DIY projects #5 – becoming boat builders
if you wanna reconstruct a 52 feet sailing yacht you need a lot of help. you need skilled professionals like welders, carpenters, engineers etc. or you just become a boat builder and do it yourself . . .
I met Tressa and Chris a while ago and they have a dream. for that dream to come true they sold their house, moved into a small apartment and bought a rusty, but beautiful steel boat.
the vessel is sitting – wrapped up like a raw butterfly – in a cocoon waiting for its metamorphosis. a transformation under a giant canopy on a scrapyard an hour away from Toronto.
the temperatures dropped, the snow got heavier and finally melted and we keep working in, under, on top and inside this iron adventure.
what we’re doing is what we’re learning and so we became a crew of Demolition-Men soon turning into a bunch of welders, carpenters, electricians, or simply: boat builders . . .
