A Boat Is A Boat…Is A Boat A Boat

To me boats have something to do with creativity, working with the wood, the boat varnish, the steel, the ropes, the canvas and the fibre-glass in double curvatures – hardly any straight lines, nothing absolutely horisontal or vertical – barely any right angles. They spell elegance and luxury and are definitely sailing boats.

Boats have carried people all over the world since the first hollowed-out tree trunk. Many of the construction methods used by the vikings for their boats are still in use today when we build wooden boats. The shape and the materials may have changed, but the general outline is easily recognizable.
