True Rigger

Took the girls to visit the Coral Castle today. My lady has spoken of wanting to see it for years and it is impressive.

I have known many working at the rigger trade but only a couple that amazed me. While I didn't witness Edward Leedskalnin perform any feats of rigging magic (He died in 1951) I was imagining the engineering required as I toured his creation.

After you know the magicians trick the thrill is gone. Not so with the good riggers magic.

I think Ed would have made a sailor.
