Nautical Nonsense

One of the projects that I am working on is to basically help a town redevelop a piece of old industrial property into something useful, I mean, good for the community, I mean, revenue-generating. Their idea of the perfect something is a museum campus dedicated to the regional history, which includes boat building.

On my last trip, we got to tour around to some of the more active members of the nautical community, and our tour included a visit to the loft where they are giving boat-building classes. If I were a man living in mid-mitten Michigan, I would so be in this club.

Here's one they are working on now:
