Wood and Canvas Make a Boat
To be out on the water, the spray slapping at your cheeks while the wind snaps the sail. The little craft is pulled along gently, silently by what seems to be an unseen force. Up on over the windblown swells, she bobs along. Your hand is fast on the helm as you feel your boat heel over in response to the force of the wind upon her sail … How many of us dream of someday being the captain of our own ship? Peter Werner has and he has carried that thought forward and built his own boat. Follow him in his year-long journey as he toils away to build this little wooden craft. Relish the descriptions of challenges and adventure involved in building the ELAINE FRANCES. This book rather than being a “how to” book; is a sharing of aunique life perspective.
