Wood or Nothing

CBC runs a series call "Land and Sea."

I thought some here might enjoy this about a wooden boat builder.

I hope you enjoy.

I live on a wooden boat,you can fell the energy of sorts, as well as the love that was but into the building (it was the builders last boat so he built for himself).
