The Boat

Build a boat? Why would I do such a stupid thing?

The search for meaning is never ending, however hopeless it may be.

What kind of boat will I build?

I have selected Iain Oughtred's beautiful 7' 10" Acorn Tender. This looks sufficiently difficult enough to wrap me up in knots for weeks and months to come, and will form a reasonably small pile of kindling for the inevitable day when I smash the goddamn thing in a childish fit of frustration.
Here is a link to someone who has successfully constructed this boat. This person is obviously much more focused that I am. If you would like one of these little gems and lack the patience (as I do) or possess the intelligence demonstrated when one knows one's limitations (as I clearly do not) check out thissite.
