Maybe I Will Build a Boat
Have you ever gotten the urge to do something off the wall or completely foreign to you? I am not a craftsman by any means even though I have built a few storage sheds and other odd things. I have even assembled some black powder gun kits and knapped a few replica points. I have never taken on a major project that takes long-term dedication and some skill. For many years I have had the urge to build a boat. Somewhere close to twenty years ago I bought the plans, bow stem, stern stem and ribs pieces for a Cajun pirogue or canoe. It has been in my garage all this time waiting for me to get the tools, time and desire to give it a whirl. I recently saw an ad for a boat building class being taught in
in which each student will build a canoe for their very own. If I can work it out I want to take that class before starting my boat just to learn some tricks and skills. Either way I believe this is the year I will finally build my boat. I hope each of you does something this year that you have always wanted to do. Take the time, Wild Ed Austin
