Folk boat Friday

Lets close out the year with one of my favorite boats.

Actually it was a Saturday morning in a leafy side street in Lymington, which was a great opportunity to take a look at those lovely lines.

This is a GRP (fiberglass) version of what I believe is the Nordic Folk Boat, the moulded chine lines really show off the shape. 

I'm reminded of the late Phil Bolger's essay  "Afloat on a sea of peas" although the form is very different to many of his innovative box designs.

You can almost hear the water lapping and trickling on those plank lines.

 All the best for the new year, if you haven't made a resolution then at least try and get afloat more often in 2022, be kind to everyone even those who don't deserve it and remember you can't change the past so work on changing the future.
