Time for Reflection

One of the loveliest aspects of living a nautical life, be it as a sailor, boatwright or simply someone entranced by the idea of the open ocean, is the endless opportunity for reflection. The solitude of the waves, the mirror image of a brilliant sunset on the water, or the simple acts of craftsmanship leave one with time to contemplate what is truly important. In this spirit, we’ve chosen to highlight two clips from Charlotte: A Wooden Boat Story, where the boatwrights of Gannon & Benjamin Marine Railway take a moment to reflect.
