I can barely remember where to rest my first wood carving tools. When I look at this kind of magnificent work of art I imagine what those cultures held so passionately must have been great. The ability to build a ship is not one for the faint hearted. You’d need to have a very special ability to get along with a crew of creative people with weaknesses and emotional insecurities of their own. You probably would need to get your butt to work when you see your colleagues slagging. When it comes to ships, you’re talking about a wild thing against another wild element, not so different from itself. But different in composition.
