"Messing about in Boats"

“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”
― says Ratty to Mole in Kenneth Grahame’s classic novel The Wind in the Willows

"'Magic Fly', a 1986 Dragonfly 25, is getting close to completion. It had been on the lake for about ten years but had sort of sunk. :( This is a pic from last year just after I got it. It barely held together for a first sail, then I disassembled it and started a complete rebuild. I am taking plenty of photos, and I never refuse a little help." ;) -Bruce Barton

"... photo (is) from 2015, a pre-assembly of PF-2 before I hauled it to the lake and launched it. I had spent about a year rebuilding it in a field south of town. I documented most of the work." -Bruce Barton
