The countryside of England
is littered with the decaying carcasses of dreamers .
It seems that in the 70s it was a national pastime , to try and build a boat . Companies all over the Land were offering to build you a hull
or Fibre Glass . The start of many dreams .
I was one of them , a dreamer. So we ( my first wife and I ) went out looking for a boat , to get out on the water
. We thought a good start would be a two person Kayak
. We came back with a 17í motor
A few years went by and by then we both had the bug , we wanted to sail the 7 seas . After a few mishaps , we took sailing lessons
, leading RYA Yacht Master Certs .
By this time our jobs and children
were taking most of our time , so we decided to build a boat in the back garden , at least we could sit in it , sip tea and dream .
Unfortunately after a year or two she got fed up with dreaming or maybe it was too much tea , she left .
So I was left to finish the project
on my own .
I did finish and did sail her for a few years , but not the 7 seas , that was to come later , which is another story .
Dream on .
But do it.
