“Sometimes it’s not about the boat…”

OK, this image may not make sense to you in this context..
Mick (Michael) Storer has a fascinating piece on his website. He begins by recounting his days and the characters at a boatyard where he once worked in Australia. At times, his stories remind me of my own days at a yard, where I learned to push, pull, and lift.
Here’s his premise: “Anyway … back to my narrative. It was invoked by the idea that ‘not finishing’ a boat is a type of ‘failure’.”
