burning desire

A very nice wood, gaff rigged catboat departing Pepperell Cove, Kittery, ME. It has  a small in-board motor too.

A dream of mine, the small yet capable sailing vessel and the Maine Island Trail, some day perhaps.

This weekend in Portland Maine  you could  really stoke such  dreamy fires with a visit to a boat show.

It’s the  Maine Boatbuilders Show and I have been several times and might dash up this year too. The wooden boats are akin to fine furniture, the bronze & brass fittings gleam. It’s a great take.
