“Juan Sa Bulan III” in South Georgia
I’ve always held the brave souls who build their own boats in the highest of regard. Not only must they possess a formidable array of practical skills, but also the determination and psychological fortitude to see the job through. Anybody who thinks that’s not true just hasn’t been there—building a boat is a mammoth test of endurance. Such people are T. E. Lawrence’s dreamers of the day who think big and make things happen, and they are rare indeed.
