Not a day goes by that I'm not grateful to someone for something when I'm with my wooden boat. Thanks to their hands, their tools, their ingenuity... I can go sailing. I can rest assured.

In this photo alone, that includes:

Unknown people somewhere who made the cloth, the grommets, the shackle, the cotter pin, the thread, the bolt rope, the leather strip, the parachute cord and marlin twine. You get the picture.  We depend on each other more than we realize some days... too many days.
