Very enjoyable video. A true artisan! Brought back recent memories of a trip to the OBX in N.C. In Hatteras there is the Albatross Fleet. They are N.C.'s original offshore fleet. Originally built in 1937 as Seine boats they are now charter boats. Beautiful lines and a unique design....There is something sublime about wooden boats. If I had another life time to devote......

Nice video. By chance I've just read an article about ancient naval battles, with so many sailing vessels sunk within a few hours of human folly.
How many unknown artisans like this must have contributed to the setup:-(
