A leep of faith in wood
I have been dreaming of keeping and sailing a wooden boat for as long as I can remember. What boy has not? Well a few weeks ago it all came true for me. Having been exploring the sea in my home built greenland skin boat and then a high tech carbon Kevlar sea kayak for the last 5yrs my children are a bit sad about daddy going off on his own or with his friends to the sea without them. As a family we have also been canoe camping but now with two children and a dog the canoe is ok for the afternoon but with all the camping kit as well it was going to be a bit over packed..... So my imagination took a leep after being reminded of the family potential of the classic Nordic folkboat.
