Saturday centus

October 6, 2012

This little true story  is linked to week 127 of Saturday Centus.  The six word prompt is in Sometimes you bend sometimes you break  … 

Sometimes you bend; sometimes you break was not an option for my Dad.  He was a master boat builder of fine repute.  This little life boat conversion was rebuilt using recycled materials from other salvaged boats; a work in progress and his pride and joy.  Each timber was steamed and bent carefully and meaningfully placed using copper rivets.  Any breakage due to his neglect or poor quality would have a marked effect on his costing.  It was his plan to take his growing family sailing around the Solent and the English Channel after  several years steaming, bending of timbers and sewing sails; we did.
