messing about in boats

Boat Sketching

Posted in General Boating Stuff by Joseph Moore on October 29, 2009

I’ve been hanging out on the boat design forums a bit lately. I find how boats are made immensely interesting – always have done. When I was a kid I used to make sketch after sketch of boat plans on my mum’s endless supply of graph paper. Classic gaff-rigged smacks, freestyle kayaks, narrowboats, anything really. It usually depended where I’d been on holiday that summer as to which style of boats were inspiring me at the time. It’s a shame, I don’t think I’ve got any of them still. Not that they were any more than (very neatly drawn) rough sketches.

Maybe I missed my calling in life?

      I don’t think I’ve got any unfortunately, unless mum’s squirrelled them away somewhere. Maybe I’ll get back to drawing and dreaming one day soon.
