old boats

Timeless, low-tech, heavy and hard work. It could have been 1970 in this quiet corner of the business end of town.

Well worn hulls and rusted tools casually juxtaposed, create unintentional large scale industrial still lifes.

An active life is the preferred prescription but even a still life is still life.

Dated details of nautical character re-plot the courses of past navigations.

Seafaring legends well past their prime, carried ashore by heavy machinery, tide and time.

Dry docked due to wear and age, 
time demands a course correction. 
Technology offers a turn of the page; 
but craftsmanship favors a resurrection.
