Companion piece to 'The Boat and the Bush'.

Dad worked in the pine forest as a bulldozer driver. Discing firebreaks and forming logging tracks. His dad was a fisherman and so was he. He only just made ends meet with a large family but was apprehensive about leaving the security of steady work in the milltown for the gamble of long lining from a small boat. A neighbor brought this old hull but soon lost interest in it. Dad brought it for a few dollars. We worked on it for 2 or 3 years. Steaming ribs, punching in thousands of copper rivets, using old telephone poles for keel and beltings, caulking, sanding painting and scraping. Anyway, when the 'Cosma' was trucked to the coast the old man did real well and never looked back. This was about 1950.

With photos. Sorry some are not very clear.

Really enjoyed this. (We have 4 boats in our back yard)

The Cosma really turned out fine. She's a beauty!

Makes me think I have to get to work on my old man's boat that's in our back yard - an old Drascombe Lugger. She needs a mainmast, mizzenmast, sails......

Thanks for posting that.


Regards,


Bob

Wow! That is a very cool production. I wish my memory was as rich and nuanced as yours and that if it was I could write imagery like that. I just like everything about this.

Thanks Bob ( 4 boats! ). That lugger sounds fascinating. I think boats are like wives. They require a huge commitment but are absolutely wonderful. 'Cosma' kept working for about 20 years.

DA thanks for that wonderful comment. ( i'm a bit bass crazy )

Janice and Bud. Thanks for the support and super comment!

I'm so glad you enjoyed this one Floyd ( and Dad's old photos )

Thanks Guenter - I get so many forgotten memories floating up these days. Glad you enjoyed it.

Hi Dani. Thanks for the listen and enjoying it.
Thanks also for doing my request. Great! Keen to hear it.

Thanks to all for making my day. Cheers.
