Boat building Days

 Toroa ~ In all her sunshine glory on passage from Brooklin to Newport RI.  It has to be said that the latter part of 2017, saw my creative practice almost totally abandoned, in favour of the build, launch and commission of a 72ft sailing vessel with luxury interior. The project has been a joyful rollercoaster and one that I have truly relished. The images below show a glimpse into the type of work involved, I am unable to share too much given that the boat is privately owned, however, I have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of satisfaction I have felt upon its completion. To watch and aid in the transformation of a pile of raw materials into floating vessel, which works, moves sails, flies even has been nothing short of amazing. To feel the structure you have nurtured fill with the power of the wind for the first time and take off is a miraculous feeling and I am so grateful to everybody that has put time and effort into turning "Toroa" into the boat she is today.  You can see more of her  here .
